Top Tips

Gooseberries will be ready for picking from early July - birds love the berries so protect the ripening fruit with fine gauge netting if you need to.

Care Information

Care of your gooseberry

  • Mulch to conserve soil moisture.
  • Water regularly and especially during dry spells. Container-grown gooseberries should be watered as soon as their soil dries out.
  • In late winter, feed with a balanced granular feed. Avoid feeding the plants with too much nitrogen because this can encourage weak growth, which can be prone to mildew.
  • Plant bare-root gooseberries between late autumn and early spring, and container-grown plants at any time, avoiding waterlogged, dry or frozen soil.
  • Standards should be staked to keep them stable.

Pruning your gooseberry

  • In Year one, in early spring of the first year after planting, prune the main stems back by half.
  • From year two onwards, in November, shorten the main stems that you pruned in the spring back to half of their new growth. Any new side shoots that have grown from the main shoots can also be either shortened by half or removed if they are not needed. At the same time, remove any suckers or side shoots that are damaged or crossing. Aim for a goblet shape.
  • After year two, bushes just need a simple twice-yearly trim. In July, trim all new side shoots to 5 leaves.
  • In winter, cut back main stems by half their new growth and any side shoots back to 2 buds (these are the shoots that you trimmed in July). Any stems that are damaged, dead or out of place can also be removed.
