The Q&A Archives: Gooseberries

Question: We have two gooseberry bushes and were wanting to know if they should be trimmed back. If so when should this be done?

Answer: I prune my gooseberries only when the branches become crossed, damaged, or just generally in the way of what I am doing (those prickles hurt!). I prune in very early spring.
