Gooseberry Collection - 3x Bare Root Plants

  • Catalogue Code 1060-5645
  • Pack Contents: 3x Bare Root Gooseberry Plants

Enjoy this fantastic collection of patio-container gooseberry varieties, in three different colours and full of fresh taste. The different colours indicate different high vitamin levels of vitamin C, B and others. Great for growing, great for health.

Your Gooseberry Collection consists of three bushes; one bush each of:

  • Hinnonmaki Yellow: golden fruit, sweet and juicy
  • Invicta: green, tart yet satisfying
  • Captivator: red and fragrant gooseberries

Each of your three plants is a two-year old bush with a central sturdy leg and at least two strong fruiting stems. This signifies that they are perfectly trained when they get to you, ready for the plants to grow and give you optimum fruit.

We recommend you plant one variety in a 30cm (12in) pot of rich yet free-draining soil- choose John Innes No3. These varieties grow happily in sun or shade. Simply cut back the stems in winter that are crossing, growing inwards or spindly-looking for maximum plant health.

How you receive your plants:

Your gooseberry plants arrive to you as a bare-root specimens 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.
