i have a huge gooseberry bush which needs pruning. I cut back the side shoots last June by six inches and had a good harvest. However it is really much too big. Is it too late to prune now without losing next years crop?
Thank you jon24ty for the advice. I will have to arm myself with long prickle-proof gloves.
There was a good video on this site showing how to winter prune a gooseberry bush but there seems to be a problem with the link because it shows how to remove canker in apple trees http://www.gardenersworld.com/how-to/projects/creative-projects/how-to-winter-prune-gooseberries-and-redcurrants/122.html
