Top Tips

Standards should be staked to keep them stable and as plants crop very well, so you may need to support the branches if they are heavy with fruit.

Care Information

Planting Advice for your gooseberry:

  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill one the shrub is in place.
  • Before planting soak container-grown plants thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your gooseberry in the hole at the same level at the pot
    Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.

Care Advice for Gooseberry Hinnomaki Green:

  • Mulch to conserve soil moisture.
  • Water regularly and especially during dry spells. Container-grown gooseberries should be watered as soon as their soil dries out.
  • In late winter, feed with a balanced granular feed. Avoid feeding the plants with too much nitrogen because this can encourage weak growth, which can be prone to mildew.
  • Plant bare-root gooseberries between late autumn and early spring, and container-grown plants at any time, avoiding waterlogged, dry or frozen soil.
  • Gooseberries will be ready for picking from early July - birds love the berries so protect the ripening fruit with fine gauge netting if you need to.

Pruning Hinnomaki Gooseberries:

Year one
In early spring of the first year after planting, prune the main stems on the head back by half.

Year two onwards
In November, shorten the main stems that you pruned in the spring back to half of their new growth. Any new side shoots that have grown from the main shoots can also be either shortened by half or removed if they are not needed. At the same time, remove any suckers or side shoots from the trunk.

After year two, bushes just need a simple twice-yearly trim:
In July, trim all new side shoots to 5 leaves.
In winter, cut back main stems by half their new growth and any side shoots back to 2 buds (these are the shoots that you trimmed in July).
Any stems that are damaged, dead or out of place can also be removed.
