Caring and Maintenance

Water during dry periods. Remove any weeds or rocks and place a mulch around the plant in winter if you would like to avoid further weeds. Prune when dormant between late autumn and late winter.


  • Planting Distance: 1.2m

Gooseberry bushes tolerate a wide range of soil conditions, but prefer well-drained conditions. A pH of 6.2 - 6.5 is ideal. They prefer full sun, but will also grow in partial shade.
Dig a hole at least twice the size of the root ball. Ideally, mulch with compost or rotted manure. Firm the bush in well before watering.

Can be planted at any time of the year, as it is a containerised plant.

Fruit Benefits

These fruits should be eaten or frozen within a few days of harvest. They please even the most sophisticated of palates, and can be made into jams and preserves to bring great summer memories on autumn or winter days. Freshly picked fruit will bring your desserts to life with a flavour that simply can't be matched by mass produced, shop bought fruit. When planning your garden, try to choose varieties with fruits that ripen from early summer to late autumn to ensure a constant supply of fresh fruits throughout the warmer months.

RHS Award of Garden Merit

The Award of Garden Merit or AGM is an award made to garden plants by the British Royal Horticultural Society after a period of assessment by the appropriate committees of the Society. Awards are made annually after plant trials (which may last for one or more years, depending on the type of plant being trialled) at RHS Garden, Wisley and other RHS gardens, or after observation of plants in specialist collections. This is intended to judge the plants' performance for conditions in the UK.
