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.
