Thanks, Bob, very much for your kiwi pollination info.    I've hard-copied it for
my files.

I threw out my A argutas last year ... they just kept getting frosted and having
to leaf out all over again.

My A deliciosa don't have the same frost-sensitivity.

I do have lots of bumbles, but in this wet windy weather, even they stay inside
until the weather improves.

Hoping the weather improves,

Derry
