All Around the Gooseberry Bush
I am so happy to add to my collection of soft fruits in the garden. This latest addition is from a friend's garden, who is soon to move to a yet-to-be-determined-perfect-little-house and will be moving her garden with her. After several years of happy harvests, she was ready to part with her gooseberry bush and since I have been wanting one, it came home with me. It was remarkably easy to dig up (vicious pointy thorns notwithstanding), and seems happy to be in a new fertile hole with some mulch surrounding it. With any luck, it will settle in nicely and continue to be cheerful. It is, thankfully, very hard to kill a gooseberry.
