Actinidia kolomikta seeds
From Eastern Asia comes this unusual, striking climber with heart-shaped leaves that are metallic green in spring, then gradually become variegated with creamy-white and pink as the season progresses. In June bears fragrant white flowers followed by sweet, edible fruits that are rich in vitamin C. A hardy climber, but will give the best colour if planted against a wall or fence in full sun.

Sowing Instructions: Sow at any time of year. Sow very thinly on the surface of a 50:50 mix of seed compost and vermiculite/perlite and just cover the seed with sieved compost, vermiculite or perlite. The seeds then need 3 months stratification at 1-5C. Seal the seeds inside a polythene bag and place in the fridge or outdoors in winter making sure the compost does not dry out. After this time, move to a propagator or other place out of direct sun, maintain at 15-18C and germination should occur within 2-3 weeks. Germination can be erratic, hence the need to sow thinly so that seedlings can be removed without disturbing the compost too much.
Growing Instructions: Grow the seedlings on in well-ventilated, cooler conditions, about 10-15C. Overwinter if necessary in a frost free place. When established, gradually acclimatise to outdoor conditions before planting out in late spring in a sheltered, sunny site preferably against a wall or fence.
