About Our Gooseberries

Gooseberry

Gooseberry plants are sold bareroot. They are a very easy plant to grow requiring virtually no maintenance. Partial shade is preferred as well as lightly acidic to neutral soil. Gooseberries are self-fruitful and do not require a pollenizer. They are an excellent addition to a hedgerow, edible landscape, wildlife planting or perennial garden. NOTE: Jostaberry is a cross between a gooseberry and black currant and can be found on the “Other Fruit” page.

2023 Nursery ordering has begun and goes through April 1st. Pre-order pickup and regular store shopping will be April 21st-May 21st.
