    I had a good Crop of Gooseberries last Summer, but the Gooseberry Sawfly, took every last Leaf. What is the best thing to do, before it comes into Growth again.

    Hi Tina. I’m sure it will have lost all its leaves anyway by now. There isn’t anything to do until it comes into leaf again, I wouldn’t think. It depends if you are organic or not and I am so I don’t know about deterrents. I’m sure our gurus will know. I always prune mine in the winter, taking off dead and crossing branches and making sure the middle is clear to keep the air circulating.

    Like you, I had a bush, chez le Pres, a few years back Tina, that was stripped. I hard pruned and it was gradually coming back to life, so :fingers-crossed: :rose:
