A guide to choosing the right size

All orders are despatched in one delivery. If your order contains both bare root and container grown plants then we can only despatch when all plants are ready. 

Any Bare Root Items - Availability means Available for supply from Nov to May.

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.
2 Year Bush = A two year old plant that has been pruned back in the first winter to form a bush shape. Generally plants will be 60-75cm in height with multiple side branches.

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.


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.

Wonderful looking plants packaged very well. Purchased earlier in the year whilst dormant now looking fantastic. I'm always extremely pleaased with Blackmoor and would recommend them to anyone.

Such a good pair of bushes arrived impeccably packed and very well-grown. I am always impressed by the quality of my purchases and the excellent service.

Plants received this morning, excellently packed, I couldn't have packed them better myself - real care and attention given prior to their shipping, meaning that the cherry tree arrived in perfect condition, unlike some companies who send them in a plastic bag where small limbs become broken and damaged!, All the other soft fruit plants, (Strawberries, gooseberries & raspberries,) arrived in perfect condition as well. Tuffnells' courier courteous and helpful. An excellent all round delivery service from the point of ordering to the arrival of the plants this morning. Thank you. I would highly recommend anyone thinking of buying plants via the post to use Blackmoor Nursery.
