Gooseberry 'Xenia' - Gorgeous, red, smooth-skinned dessert gooseberries with an exceptionally sweet flavour.
Gooseberry 'Hinnonmaki Yellow' - Unlike other varieties the fruits of this variety have a delicious aromatic flavour with a hint of apricot.

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. Remove any suckers from the base of the plant as they arise. Netting the bushes will help to protect the currants from 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 gooseberry plants in winter. Remove dead, damaged and crossing stems, before thinning the remaining stems to create an upright open bush. Shorten the remaining stems by half. In spring apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the soil.

Plant gooseberry bushes in an open sunny position 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. Goosberries should be planted at a distance of 1.5m (5') apart at their original depth which is indicated by a mark left on the stem by the nursery soil.

Great gooseberry bushes! 2012-04-22

Arrived on time and are growing very well despite being in a somewhat shady area of the garden. I look forwards to a good crop, probably next year.
