Description How to Grow More Info Delivery
This early-summer fruiting gooseberry produces heavy crops of large, red fruits that ripen to a delicious sweet flavour in June and July. Gooseberry 'Hinnomaki Red' is perfect for growing in containers on the patio, with its stems trained onto a trellis, for a space saving crop. Height and spread: 1m (39").


1 Bare Root Plant (Organic) (KC3094)
1 x 9cm Potted Plant (KB0573)

Plant Gooseberry bushes from late autumn to early spring. Choose a sunny border on any well drained soil. Prior to planting, incorporate a generous amount of well rotted manure or garden compost into the soil. Remove any shoots or dormant buds from the base of the plant as these will produce unwanted suckers later on. Plant bushes at a distance of 1.5m (5') apart. Plant them at their original depth which is indicated by a mark left on the stem by the nursery soil. Firm in and water well.
Water well for the first year until plants are fully established. When growing gooseberries, the soil must not dry out during hot periods, particularly while the fruit is being formed. Continue to remove suckers from the base of the plant as they arise. When berries begin to develop, place a net or fruit cage around the plants to protect your crop from greedy birds! Harvest some gooseberries for cooking and freezing in May, leaving the remaining fruit to ripen fully in June for eating fresh from the bush. Prune in winter. Remove dead, damaged and crossing stems then thin stems to create an upright open bush. Shorten remaining stems by half. In spring apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil.
