I just wanted to let you know my plants have arrived today as promised. I have unpacked them and they are wonderful, I am so pleased with them. They are much bigger than I expected and in tip-top condition. Thank you so much. I also think they are really excellent value for money – I buy most of my plants on-line (living in Cornwall the choices are a bit limited) and I had looked for Hydrangea seemannii at my usual on-line supplier but they were so expensive I was a bit put off. Ten pounds per plant more (!) Then I searched around and found you – your plants were considerably cheaper and larger so I was a bit worried they might fall short of the mark. But… absolutely no worries on that front. In fact I bought two seemannii from the other supplier earlier this year (I think they are a very ‘useful’ plant, particularly for someone who lives in a walled garden) so can do a direct comparison. Interestingly, they are smaller than yours now even though they have been in the ground and well cared for, for more than six summer months. Many thanks, excellent service and terrific plants – I will be back..!Debbie Frost
Invicta Gooseberry Bushes
Invicta gooseberry bushes carry the classic green cooking gooseberry. Invicta is probably the heaviest fruiting gooseberry available today. The fruit stays firm when cooked and the plant is vigorous, spreading and thorny, but disease resistant. Cropping is early, starting at the end of May (depending on location)
Invicta is probably the best gooseberry bush for growing on wires (ideal for allotments or where space is restricted).
All our gooseberry plants are strong, 2 year old bare-rooted bushes with between 3-5 shoots each. When planting gooseberries leave 140 cms between plants and 150cms between rows.
Characteristics of Invicta Gooseberry Bushes:
- Green/yellow, cooking.
- Crops steadily from late May to mid June.
- Mildew resistant.
