Product Description
Gooseberry Invicta 3.5 litre pot

A vigorous spreading bush with large, pale green berries which are good for both culinary and dessert use.

It is one of the most popular gooseberries grown due to heavy yields and resistance to American gooseberry mildew.

Gooseberries are easy to grow shrubs for any size garden and are usually the first bush fruit to be picked.

Grow them as bushes, fans, espaliers, cordons or even standards.

Remove all weeds and dig in plenty of well-rotted manure into the area. Once planted, apply a mulch of well-rotted manure every spring as well as a nitrogen and potassium fertiliser.

Make sure the plant is watered in dry weather and net the bushes to protect the fruit from birds.

In the first year, prune shoots back by half to three-quarters to an outward-facing bud in winter. After that prune out weak and older branches only.
Position: full sun, but some shading needed in very hot weather
Soil: any well-drained soil
Rate of growth: average
Other features: large, pale green berries (late July)
Hardiness: fully hardy

The plant is grown in a 3.5 litre pot.
