Any Container grown items - Availabity means Available for supply now. 

Bare Root = Field grown plants that have been freshly lifted and supplied with no soil around the roots. Only available during the dormant period November-April
3 Litre = Container grown and can be planted all year round. The size refers to the number of litres of compost that the container holds.

Cropping in June to July. Fruit can be used for jam and pies.

The varieties that we grow replace a lot of the older varieties that suffered badly with American Gooseberry mildew.

The varieties we stock all have good resistance to mildew and the red variety Pax is virtually spineless.

Plant bushes 1.5 metres apart. An ideal fruit for the small garden.

Usually grown in the form of a small bush, they can be trained to any shape and are especially recommended for pot culture.

situation

Gooseberry bushes are easy to grow, produce a large amount of fruit for their size and will tolerate partial shade conditions. They are self fertile, so one bush can be grown on its own. Gooseberry bushes are also well able to withstand harsher conditions (both temperature and wind) than many other fruits. This makes them a good choice for cooler areas.
