Q.Growing Raspberries and Gooseberries in Large Pots

Anonymous added on March 19, 2014 | Answered

I have purchased five 5 ft raspberry canes to grow in a large pot, as I have a small garden. Is it possible to do the same with gooseberries by keeping them in a large pot as you would if growing peas or beans in a wigwam shape? And would I prune the side shoots off each year to keep the shape.

Yes, you can grow gooseberries in containers as well, just make sure to provide the same growing requirements and adequate drainage. This article provide growing info: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/gooseberries/growing-gooseberries.htm I assume the pruning is for the raspberry plants.
