Planting advice for your berries:
- Water your potted plant well.
- Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
- Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
- Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
- Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
- Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
- Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball, and water well.
- Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
Aftercare Advice for your berry collection:
- Mulch plants to retain moisture, and if you use garden compost or well-rotted manure this will feed your plants at the same time.
- Water regularly and especially during dry spells. Container-grown gooseberries should be watered as soon as the top inch or so of soil dries out.
- Plant container-grown plants at any time, avoiding waterlogged, dry or frozen soil.
