Gooseberries and currants are delicious eaten fresh, freeze well and are perfect for making pies, jams and jellies. They are easy to grow and heavy yielding and although they prefer a sunny position, they will tolerate partial shade. Soil should be free draining. Gooseberries and currants will begin fruiting in the second year and once fully established will produce up to 4.5kg (10lb) of fruit per bush for at least 10 years. Plant 1.2-1.5m (4-5ft) apart with a 1.5-1.8m (5-6ft) gap between rows. Plants are available from late November to late April.

 

For better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).

Trailing Blackberry 'Black Cascade' (3 plants)The first of its kind, this cascading blackberry is suitable for growing in a patio container or hanging basket. ‘Black Cascade’ produces masses of large, sweet tasting berries on thornless arching stems. Due to its primocane habit (cropping on the one year old cane) it is easy to manage and will crop in its first year. We recommend planting one plant per 35-40cm (14-16in) basket, although in the first year, for greater effect you can plant three plants per basket. When fully mature, each plant will produce up to 2.8lbs (1.3kg) of fruit. Eventual height x spread: 30cm (12in) x 18in (45cm).Buy Now
