Gooseberry Pruning

Posted: 05/07/2014 at 09:51

This is the best video I've found on pruning gooseberries - I think he makes it pretty clear. 

Yes, cut the sideshoots back now to 5 leaves.  Do the main pruning in the winter.

Think the rain's stopping now -I need to go into the village to pick up a prescription and some cheese and bits and pieces - don't want to get drenched in the car park.

The forecast is for the rain to clear up this afternoon - I hope so - It's the Lord Mayor's Parade this afternoon - lots of youngsters will have been working long and hard on their contributions - it'll be such a shame if it rains.

Not that I'm going into the city to see it this year - we have been sometimes, but as OH now works on Saturdays he's not really keen on standing in a crowd lining the roads, then getting squashed and jostled when he tries to buy a drink.  

There's more than 50 floats this year!!!
