How your plants arrive:

Your gooseberry plant arrives to you as a bare-root specimen with some dormant stems but more crucially a healthy set of roots which are eager to get into the ground and grow well over the cold months to support strong stems from the following spring.

If you can’t plant your gooseberry straight away we recommend that you keep your bare-root plant in a cool, and light position (but away from direct sun) and keep the soil well-watered but not waterlogged. Aim to plant within 10 days from delivery.
