Overview

Gooseberry,  bare root fruit bush/shrub for Spring planting

Working with our suppliers we have come together to bring you bare root balls for Spring planting, adding Summer colour to your garden and delicious fruit in the late Summer / early Autumn.

 

This bare fruit bush/shrub root ball produces delicious fruit for eating raw or cooking with.


Bare root fruit bush/shrubs are best planted between March and May, as long as the ground is not frozen or waterlogged.


After removing the root ball from the packaging, remove any damaged roots. Loosen off the soil around the root ball and place in a bucket of water so that the roots can have a good drink.


Dig over your garden using a fork to remove any large stones and weeds so that the rose roots have plenty of space to grow without any competition, dig a hole big enough to place the root ball into approx. 40cm by 40cm. Fork in some well rotted manure or other fertiliser into the base of the hole. Place the roots into the hole, at this point you may want to add some Mycorrhizal Fungi to encourage the roots to grow quickly.


Place the root ball in to the hole leaving about 5cm from the stem base to the top of the hole. The removed soil can now be placed back into the hole around the root ball. Lightly press the soil with you foot around the root ball. Remove any extra shoots, so all the plants energy goes into the roots until they are established.


Water the gooseberry well.


Gooseberries grow in most soils and prefer a sunny position but not direct afternoon sun. The soil should drain easily, fruit bush/shrubs do not like to stand in water.
