Description

Quintessentially English, gooseberries can be picked early in the season for savoury sauces or left on the bush to ripen, gradually becoming deliciously sweet and juicy. This superb collection brings together 3 self-fertile, productive varieties to provide superb crops from late June onwards. Height and spread: 120cm (48”).

Collection comprises :
Gooseberry 'Captivator' - Attractive deep red fruits on virtually spine-free stems.
Gooseberry 'Hinnonmaki Yellow' - Unlike other varieties the fruits of this variety have a delicious aromatic flavour with a hint of apricot.
Gooseberry 'Invicta' - One of the heaviest cropping gooseberries available produces almost twice as much fruit as other varieties.

Estimated time to cropping once planted: 4-8 months.
Estimated time to best yields: 28-32 months.

How to Grow
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.
More Info

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.
