Gooseberry bush -1m (3ft) standard, or a 1 to 2 year old bush
Fill the base of the pot with a layer of stones to provide drainage,
and cover them with some of the compost.
Remove the bush from its container and place in the terracotta pot.
Adjust the level of compost so that the soil mark on the bush
main stem sits about 2cm (1in) below the rim of the new pot.
Fill in the pot with remaining compost to 2cm (1in) below the rim.

Water well throughout the summer when the fruit is developing and feed
with a liquid fertiliser once a week. If the plant is a
standard, stake well soon after planting.
