Growing Calendar for Gooseberry Hinnonmaki Red - Standard Tree
Delivery: Early May to Late August
A delicious dessert and culinary gooseberry variety, resistant to mildew, producing lots of large red fruit. Hinnonmaki Red shows excellent vigour and produces handsome harvests. Trained as a lollipop tree-like standard for easy-pickings of delicious fruit, perfect for growing in pots in a sunny spot outside.
Expect up to 4 punnets full of gooseberries in your first year, increasing to around 6 punnets from the second year onwards. Your gooseberry Hinnonmaki Red standard tree pays for itself, when you think of all those punnets you no longer need to buy at the supermarket.
We recommend you plant 1 gooseberry Hinnonmaki Red standard tree in one 12-16in (30cm-40cm) diameter pot. Grow more than one plant if you love picking gooseberries to eat as well as using them in desserts like pies.
How your plant arrives?
Your plant arrives to you in a 3 litre pot with an already-established root network. The pot is wrapped in a polythene bag to keep the root area moist and kept in place with a layer of corrugated cardboard to keep it secured in transit.
This is further placed in a paper bag which is how it arrives to you. Simply remove all layers and replant to a larger container, firming in well.
You can transplant containerised plants at any time of the year; they responded very well when you plant them in a larger pot or in the ground in spring as the soil is warming up from the sun.
Can’t plant straight away?
You can keep your plant in the 3litre pot for around 3-5 days so long as you make sure the root area is nice and humid and the roots feel moist.
Keep your plants in a light, cool position away from full sun like an unheated porch or greenhouse.
Look to planting in its permanent position within 5 days.
