Growing Calendar for Standard Gooseberry Plant - Invicta - Bare Root
Delivery: Early November to Early May
Invicta is truly victorious gooseberry with Award of Garden Merit status, cropping twice as heavily as others, producing a generous crop of large green berries.
An excellent choice for cooking, freezing and jam as the fruit holds its shape and colour well. Your tree-trained plant reveals lots of fruit at an ideal and comfortable height for picking.
This gooseberry variety arrives to you as a bare-root fully labelled plant with its roots surrounded by a polythene bag and the whole plant arriving to your door in a protective cardboard box.
Bare-root plants are perfect for you to plant in the ground or in containers anytime from autumn to spring.
The head of leaves and stems will burst into leaf and flower from next spring, and a good root network which will establish in the ground over winter.
Helpful advice prior to order. Quick delivery. Well packaged. Healthy plant at a good price.
Who knows if the plants will survive such a late delivery. Would say also that packaging poor with the cable ties so tight that they marked the bark. Also roots very dry indeed, surely they should have been at least moist before despatch?? These were really expensive plants and have my doubts if they are likely to thrive!
These arrived during the hottest time and despite looking very sorry for themselves to the point we took a photo just in case we needed to report back to Marshalls any bad outcome of the plants [ knowing how Marshalls always correct any problems like this ] we were delighted that after a really good soaking and being kept in the shade to recover , the plants have really come back in condition.
