    Good morning. Need your help. In November, I became the new owner of a kiwi plant, which is in a large pot. Previous owner could not take the plant with her. It has small fruit. My problem is does it need pruning? In early December some type of fungus got on the leaves causing many of them to drop off. Checked with the local Ag. extension office and they recommended getting a pesticidal oil solution to spray on the plant. That worked, but as mentioned several of the branch have no leaves. So, should those branches be pruned off or what.

    By the way I live in Greenwood, Florida which is about half an hour from the Alabama line.

    Appreciate any help you can offer.

    Karen
