Hinnomaki Red


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?



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.
