Bare Root Fruit Plants

Gooseberry 'Invicta' is our favourite variety because of its good resistance to mildew and very high yields (up to twice other varieties). The fruit is smooth, tart and tasty and holds together well when cooked making perfect pies and preserves.

Harvest from late May onwards.

Health Benefits:
Gooseberries are a very high source of dietary fibre and vitamin C. The berries also contain various levels of Vitamin B6, Calcium, Iron and potassium (good for blood pressure). They are Antioxidant rich and both help to lower cholesterol and improve gastrointestinal health.

It is now beginning of December - is it too late to plant gooseberries? When will they first crop? Thanks

Hi Annette Not at all. The perfect time for planting any fruit like this bare root is from Late October until mid February so now is just about perfect. You will get a small crop in year one with a much larger crop the following year Niall Quickcrop

I have 2 gooseberry bushes planted in a raised bed for about 5 years but they have never produced fruit. Nice green healthy looking bushes this year as I pruned back hard last year but still no fruit?!
Answered by Andrew

Are you pruning the bush back hard all over every year? If so, this is your problem. Gooseberries fruit on 2 year old wood so you need to prune out large branches 4 years or older every year. You should always have some branches 2-3 years old in the bush as this is where the best fruit is produced. I hope this helps. Andrew

When is the best time for pruning gooseberrys
Answered by Andrew
on September 20th, 2017
Once the leaves are all completely gone and any sign of life is gone for the winter. I normally wait Daithi until mid to late October before i start pruning.

Hi Edith, The best time to plant gooseberries is in late autumn. Container-grown gooseberries can be planted at any time, although autumn is still best.
