Gooseberry Plants

Gooseberry plants are wonderfully hardy and easy to grow in the garden or in pots, producing delicious juicy berries with the traditional taste of English summers. Bare root is the best way to buy gooseberries, and winter is the perfect time to plant them. Your bare root gooseberry plants are delivered without pots, allowing us to pass on the savings to you. Over winter they'll settle in quickly, bursting into life in the spring. Each of our organic varieties is heavy cropping, so bring on the tarts, fools, pies and jam!

Where to grow your Gooseberry plants

Gooseberry plants have a bushy and compact habit, so they’re Ideal for smaller gardens or containers. They can be planted in a border in well drained soil or in a pot, positioned on a patio or balcony. Gooseberries prefer full sun but will also perform well in partial shade. If you’re planting several gooseberry bushes together, space the plants 1.5m apart to allow for spreading.

Gooseberry plant care tips

Gooseberry plants have thorns, so always wear gloves when pruning (late Winter or early Spring is the best time). If planted in pots, you should wrap them in fleece or bubble wrap during cold spells. You can start to harvest your gooseberries from summer onwards in the second year after planting.
