Gooseberry bush distance
« on: October 13, 2018, 19:49 »
Do they really need to be planted 5 ft apart that seems a lot?
Also can anyone suggest a type of raspberry which is good and fruits after the end of August?

Joan J is a very reliable autumn fruiting raspberry, harvest August, September and the beginning of October.
Just finished here  :)

Yes, if your soil is good and they're a reasonably vigorous variety such as invicta or leveller and you're going to leave them to grow as a bush, then you'll need that space to get around them for picking and pruning.
