Re: gooseberry no fruit

I find this most peculiar.

A bit more detail might help e.g.

1)When do you prune it (if ever) and how.

2) Is it in light or shade?

3) Is it the ground or in a pot/container?

Re: gooseberry no fruit

Hi Norman, I would think your problem is "the light shade". And maybe dryness with that? Or if it's been attacked by Gooseberry Sawfly (which strips most if not all leaves off the bush)it could have been weakened. Apart from that I would try keeping the soil around the bush "red" and feed and water in mid summer to help set buds for following year.

Re: gooseberry no fruit

thanks for the INFO what do you mean by red, the leaves on the bush are good
