Take advantage of this fantastic collection of patio-container gooseberry varieties, in three charming colours and full of fresh taste.

Your Gooseberry Collection consists of three bushes; one bush each of:

  • Hinnonmaki Yellow: golden fruit, sweet and juicy
  • Invicta: green, tart yet satisfying
  • Captivator: red and fragrant gooseberries

Every one of your three plants is two-year old bushes with a sturdy leg with at least two strong fruiting stems. This means they are perfectly trained when they get to you, ready for the plants to grow and give you maximum fruit.

We recommend you plant one variety in a 30cm (12in) pot of rich yet free-draining soil- choose John Innes No3. These varieties grow happily in sun or shade. Just cut back the stems in winter that are crossing, growing inwards or spindly-looking.

How you receive your plants:

Your gooseberry plants arrive to you as a bare-root specimens with some dormant stems but more crucially a healthy set of roots which are eager to get into the ground and grow well over the cold months to support strong stems from the following spring.

If you can’t plant your gooseberry straight away we recommend that you keep your bare-root plant in a cool, and light position (but away from direct sun) and keep the soil well-watered but not waterlogged. Aim to plant within 10 days from delivery.
