Gooseberries

A gooseberry bush will supply your kitchen with gooseberries from late spring and throughout the Summer. But the great news is that because a gooseberry bush creates a permanent root structure, and provided the bush is pruned a little each year, it's a definite kitchen garden keeper!

Plant your gooseberry bush in a sunny or partially shady position, in light but moist soil - cooler spots in the garden are best as the soil will stay adequately moist - and you can expect years of use from each plant. More...

The gooseberry bush provides fruits that can be enjoyed throughout the growing season, as soon as they reach full size. Although some gooseberry varieties produce fruits that are considerably less 'tart' - and subsequently favoured as dessert gooseberries - in most cases both the un-ripened and ripened fruits have various culinary uses, subsequently giving the gooseberry a longer than average 'productive' season. Earlier crops of un-ripened gooseberries thinned from the bush in May can be used in cooking and preserving, with only the sweetest varieties palatable as raw fruits. During the Summer, later crops can be enjoyed straight from the bush or used in desserts.

Here at Victoriana, we have chosen gooseberry bushes that satisfy our small but strict set of criteria - excellent flavoured fruits, vigorous growth, disease resistance and reliable, heavy croppers. All gooseberries are self fertile and are pollinated by insects or wind, so can be grown as single specimens in open ground, in containers, or trained as cordon or espalier plants thanks to their permanent root systems.

Plant your gooseberry bush in a sunny or partially shaded position, in a light but moist soil. Gooseberries require soil to be moist, so a cool but sunny spot is ideal as the soil is able to maintain moisture more readily. It's also important that a gooseberry plant is pruned with care, as they fruit on spurs from old wood, with tangled and overgrown bushes proving to be less healthy and less productive. Prune in winter and aim for a clear and well-aired middle to encourage new growth, discourage pests and prevent diseases such as mildew.
