When talking about soft fruit in the British garden, one of the first varieties that pops to mind is the Gooseberry, sometimes known as Ribes, a traditional favourite in the UK since the 19th Century. Their popularity lies in their culinary versatility, ease of growing and suitability to our climate. One of the most commonly known and grown varieties in this country is Careless, a winner of the RHS Award of Garden Merit, producing high yields of crisp tasting, yellow coloured fruit which is fully ripe by mid July. Supplied as bare rooted plants they can easily be planted on arrival in rows at around 1.5m apart.

Prune back in winter

Gooseberries can be planted in fertile, moisture retentive soil in a sunny, yet sheltered location. Prepare the soil in advance and put the roots of the shrub in holes large enough so that they are not too cramped. Ensure soil is filled in firmly aro und the roots, and water regularly until the shrub has become established.
They are very robust plants that will require very little care/maintenance. You can prune back each winter to ensure that the shrubs do not become too overgrown and thus ensure easy picking for next year. They are also suitable for growing in pots u sing a loam based John Innes Compost.
