Our Feedback
Reading your website, I entirely agree with this quote you feature:"It is no mistake that when you buy their plants they arrive packed so carefully that even if they have travelled hundreds of miles, they're still perfect on arrival." I unpacked this order, after collecting it from the pier where our freight is delivered by ferry. The layers of plants amazed me, so carefully laid so closely together, and still damp in heavy duty waterproof bag. Instructed by the absent gardener I gave them another drink, and placed the plants upright in their packaging, in the greenhouse, to await his return, checked next morning that they had not been eaten, and were still damp. Look forward to future use!

Originating from Germany this is a lovely fruit to grow - and more importantly to eat!

A hybrid cross of Gooseberry with Blackcurrant which has resulted in a reliable plant that produces purple black fruits that are a little bigger than a blackcurrant and a little smaller than a gooseberry. Not surprisingly, their flavour is a combination of a gooseberry and blackcurrant making them wonderful for cooking and preserves - or if left to really ripen are sweet enough to eat raw.

These were featured on the BBC Great British Garden Revival presented by Alys Fowler - who came to see us in the Summer to talk about all sorts of berries, and this just happened to be one of her favourites!

Best grown as you would a bush gooseberry, the plants are vigorous and have excellent resistance to both pest and diseases.

  • Harvest from late July.
  • Best planted 5 x 5 feet (1.5 x 1.5 metres) apart and kept at around 3 - 4 feet (90 - 120 cm) tall.
  • Self Fertile.
