Message: I planted a new Gooseberry bush last autumn - it did ok over the winter (Fleece jacket applied) and looked ok recently until a couple of weeks ago, then the leaves started to turn red, then brown and now have dropped off and it looks like it may be dying - any ideas please ?

Message: Terryjoan should try removing a large number of fruits when the are first formed. This works well on my Blueberries as well. Good luck from Peter in Sussex.
