Prune when playing gooseberry

06/05/2018 Posted by admin

GOOSEBERRIES can be pruned as they are among the earliest to burst their buds and start growth in spring. Gooseberries fruit on permanent spurs on old wood and well-ripened young wood. The object of pruning is to keep the bush open so that air and light can reach the fruit, and also to make the fruit more accessible. To produce a standard gooseberry bush, take a hardwood cutting from a strong growing, upright variety. Tie the cutting to a stake. Let the laterals develop for about a year but shorten them back as this will encourage the main stem to thicken. When you have the desired height take out the top.
