A guide to choosing the right size

Blackmoor Nursery is one of very few Nurseries in the UK offering gardeners the opportunity to buy Gooseberry plants online. 

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.

3-5 Branch = a two year old plant with 3-5 shoots. Ideal for growing as a bush shape or training into a cordon or Fan shape.

90cm Half Standard = The fruiting variety is grafted onto the stem at 90 cm above the ground level. Will require supporting with a stake.  

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.

3 great gooseberry bushes. Normally I prefer to buy my plants from local places where I can chose what I get. But really I could not have chosen better myself. The plants arrived super quick, were very well packed and in excellent condition. No mean feat in the middle of a heatwave. Great communication and responsiveness and very fair pricing too. I will definitely be using Blackmoor again. Many thanks!

Received bush within 72 hours of ordering. Lovely healthy condition. Very robust and secure packaging. Well pleased with purchase. Also well pleased with transaction over all. Great communication from Blackmoor. Have already recommended to allotment colleagues and will not hesitate to use again.

Arrived early AM just 24 hours from order. Beautifully and carefully packed in substantial heavy duty cardboard box. Bush is extremely healthy looking and happily waiting to be placed in its new home. Communications from ordering to despatch were excellent and I have no hesitation in recommending Blackmoor.

Despite spending a few days in the back of courier van on the hottest days of the year, the plant turned up in perfect health, and still had damp soil in the pot once the packaging was removed. As always, very happy with the service and quality of plants from Blackmoor.

Beautiful looking red gooseberries - sadly eaten by blackbird but he seemed to enjoy them! Excellent customer service and super plant quality.

Arrived well packed, better than locally ordered plants. A really healthy looking plant. It even gave fruit this first summer.

Excellent, healthy plant, which has produced a large crop of fruit. The flavour of this variety is very good and it is our favourite of the varieties of gooseberries we have grown.

I bought a 2 yr bush bare root as a gift and had to rearrange delivery. Prompt and flexible service, and arrived when arranged.

We bought a 2 year, 3L back in May. it was planted out immediately and has really thrived. It arrived packaged well and in great condition. Over the summer we have had some amount of fruit but a lot of new growth. No problems with mildew of any sort.
