Gooseberries are easy to grow and should be planted in rich, moist, loamy soil, preferably with good air circulation, sunny but not too hot. They are less likely to be attacked by birds than most soft fruit so netting should not be necessary.

Whinham's Industry dates back to mid 1800. Popular variety which will succeed in partial shade or full sun, heavy or poor soil. Sweet, excellent flavoured large red hairy fruits, delicious raw or cooked or as jam. Do not prune hard. Self-fertile. Fruits mid June to mid July. 2 year bushes. Plant 1.5m (5ft) apart.

Bare-Root Plants

Bare-root plants are sold without a pot/soil around the roots. This is a more cost effective and environmentally friendly way of growing plants. To ensure the best plant health we do not store our plants in cold storage, but they are left in our field or plant beds until they are ready for packing or collection.

Items marked Br are bare rooted plants grown from cuttings and are typically 1-2 years old.


Bare rooted plants are only available when the plants are dormant (typically from late November to March).

If a plant is currently out of stock because it is out of season (for example, bare rooted plants in summer) or we have sold out but we are expecting more to be available you can pre-order the plant. We only charge credit/debit cards when an order is despatched, not when an order is placed.
