Hello, I received my gooseberry bush and some Lily of the Valley plants this afternoon. I only placed the order over the weekend, your service is amazing and the plants arrived in good condition (not surprising given the packaging!!) they are already planted and watered well. I can't wait for November and the rest of my order, ever so glad I found your site. Look forward to buying from you again. Thanks, Anne p.s. your shredded paper as a mulch is inspired.

An extremely heavy cropping seedless white grape. The medium sized fruits mature to a golden yellow colour and have a sweet, almost honey, flavour. Prolific and reliable in habit, the bunches of grapes are large and well shaped.
In Southern regions of the UK your grapes should be ready for harvest late September; for more Northerly gardeners we would recommend either choosing a particularly warm and well protected outdoor spot to grow - or grow under protection.
