Ribes 'Captivator' | Gooseberry Bush
Disease-resistant heavy cropper unique for being spine-free
This tall virtually spine-free red gooseberry originated in Canada so is therefore very hardy. It is a good cropper of large, tear-shaped fruit in late July.
The fruit quality is exceptional and the berries are a deep reddish-pink and juicy sweet, making them ideal to be eaten straight from the bush. Captivator has shallow lobed leaves that turn red in Autumn. It prefers full sun but can tolerate Partial shade. An ideal variety for all purposes.

Advice on hot and droopy plants
If your plants are looking a little wilted right now, don’t worry! Plants like to be filled with water to keep their structure, and when it’s hot that water evaporates.
Just give them an off-schedule watering and they’ll be right as rain in no time! Be careful not to flood them - plants don’t like extremes.
