This Gooseberry Collection consists of three varieties; one bush each of:
Supplied to you as bare-rooted two-year old bushes on a sturdy leg and two strong branches attached, it is ready trained to produce healthy frameworks full of fruit.
All three of your varieties establish quickly and begin fruiting in the second year, producing 2-2.5kg (5-6 lbs) on every bush which will give you fruit for at least 10 years. If growing multiple collections allow for planting 1.8m (6ft) apart with 1.2m (4ft) between the rows.
Gooseberry Pax and Xenia are protected by Plant Variety Rights and cannot be propagated even for own use and resold without licence.
