Keep in mind that kiwifruit seeds need stratification. Normally seeds would be planted in Autumn, so they get stratification. However, Yarraville is close to the water and probably not as cool during winter as needed. You can simulate stratification in the fridge, though have to watch out for mold growing. From memory, you can alternatively boil or score seeds. Perhaps you could try different methods and see what works. https://gardenofeaden.blogspot.com/2012/10/how-to-grow-kiwi-from-seed.html

hi. I have sown seeds of the golden kiwifruit several times directly in potting mix in winter and they all sprouted. Since the seeds are very small, they should be sown very shallow. I found that it took several months before sprouting occurred in Spring. BTW I live in Sydney.
