Gooseberry bushes

Gooseberries are a very popular summer fruit for pies, desserts and jams but also for eating fresh. The traditional tart green varieties are the most popular for cooking, while the sweeter red and yellow varieties are the best for eating fresh. Gooseberries are rich in vitamin C and other nutrients. They grow as small bushes and can be grown even in the smallest of gardens or even in containers on a patio. They are particularly suited to the cooler British climate and grow well in all parts of the country. They require some care and attention but are generally easy to grow and maintain. Gooseberry bushes have thorns but some of the modern varieties are almost thorn free. We supply top quality strong two year bare root bushes normally with three or more branches.
