Gooseberries - Preparing the soil

UK Garden Centre - Advice on how to prepare the soil for Gooseberries

42

Gooseberries, which fruit both on the old and new wood, crop so heavily that it is necessary to maintain a balance between the production of new wood and fruiting. The plants do not need as much nitrogen as blackcurrants do, but they need humus to maintain moisture in summer. Without this the fruits cannot swell and will lack both weight and flavour. So dig in plenty of peat or old mushroom bed manure or garden compost, or clearings from ditches or ponds.
If dry conditions prevail, water the plants as often as possible, preferably in the evening, giving the roots a good soaking. All soft fruits, especially the gooseberry, require plenty of moisture for the berries to grow large and juicy. If you are growing dessert kinds, an occasional application of dilute manure water given in June will help the fruits to swell and increase the flavour.
Watering should commence as soon as the fruits have formed and should continue until ripe. If left until the berries have grown large, heavy watering will then cause the skins to crack as with tomatoes.
