Hinnomaki Red

Hello:

Have had a Hinnomaki divided and planted from a mature bush. This plant is now relocated for 2 years and has not once produced a bloom. What might the problem be? Location Portland, Oregon, USA. Soil somewhat dense but well drained.

Since buds are just now breaking, should it receive some amendments to the soil?

Thanks,

Richard

Re: Hinnomaki Red

Goosebery bushes take two to three years to fruit, so a divided plant may well take the same time.

The food for producing flowers is tomato feed, so try that. It's high in potassium.

Strangely, I can't remember ever seeing a gooseberry bloom /flower. I have a Hinomaki Red in my garden and they produce stunning gooseberries an so many. Good luck.
