Heavy cropping disease-resistant variety perfect for organic growers

A superb variety - very hardy and vigorous mid-season red gooseberry. Hinnonmaki Red reliably produces heavy crops of large, sweet, red berries of excellent quality, fruiting in mid-July. It was specifically bred in Finland for hardiness and disease resistance and is particularly resistant to mildew making it ideal for organic growing. It is also a strong but slow growing variety so is ideal for small gardens. An excellent variety for dessert or culinary purposes.

Selected items will be included with your purchase

Our soft fruit plants are carefully checked by our fruit nursery experts prior to despatch to ensure they are up to size and in perfect condition.

Larger orders are packed into specially made, extra thick cardboard boxes with innovative inserts that hold your plants in place to prevent any damage in transit.

Small orders for bare root plants are carefully wrapped and then sent in padded mail bags for delivery in the large letter postal service where there are no larger items capable of causing damage.

Key is to regularly water newly-planted bushes, at least bimonthly for two months. It is also important to ensure adequate spacing (40-60cm) between bushes.

With bare root plants, it's important to soak its roots in water for up to 2 hours before planting, while with potted plants it is important to drench the rootball. With bare root plants, dig a hole so as to ensure its first roots are no more than 2 inches below ground level, while with containerised plants, ensure the pot sits no lower than an inch below ground.

Dig a hole twice the radius of the rootball. Fill the hole with a mix of compost and garden soil, and add fertiliser and mycorrhizal fungi. Do not compress the soil. Give your plant a good watering. Add mulch on top whether bark and wood chippings, compost, manure, leaf-mould and stones. Make sure mulch doesn't touch the stem.

Gooseberry plants are extremely easy to grow. Below we address some common queries:

  • Hardiness: gooseberry plants have been grown in the UK for millennia and are hardy to -40C.
  • Position: in the UK, the greatest barrier to successful fruiting is a lack of sunlight, so planting in full sun is recommended. Planting your bush in a sheltered spot will help prevent uprooting and allow it to put more resources into fruiting.
  • Soil Types: Soil types are best ignored and remain an unwelcome confusion. Every plant will adapt to its conditions. Having said that, less than ideal conditions will reduce growth. Waterlogged soils will starve your plant of oxygen, which plays a key role in photosynthesis, cause its roots to rot and create the perfect environment for many diseases.
