Position: full sun, but some shading needed in very hot weather Soil: any well-drained soil Rate of growth: average Hardiness: fully hardy This superb, traditional variety is easy to grow, has a good resistance to disease, and produces a heavy crop of fruit. The ruby-red, medium-sized gooseberries are sweet when ripe (usually mid-July), with a tangy outer skin. They are ideal for bottling and preserves, and if left to ripen fully, they can be used for desserts too. Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting. Remove all weeds and dig in plenty of well-rotted manure into the area. Space at 1.5m intervals and once planted, apply a mulch of well-rotted manure every spring, as well as a nitrogen and potassium fertiliser. Make sure the plant is watered in dry weather and net the bushes to protect the fruit from birds.
