There are two ways of reproduction gooseberries: horizontal and vertical as green cuttings. For amateur gardeners suited first method, ie, the horizontal proliferation of germs. The mother loosen the soil and fertilize with organic additives. Shoots dipped into the prepared furrow and pinned to the ground, for this use only healthy sprouts. When using vertical sprouts measuring at least 10 cm they must be spud and water several times. When autumn comes, the germs that have taken root, cut and then have “shrunk” for permanent seats. If the shoots are weak – they are left grows for some time.

With older bushes take vertical shoots by cutting the branches almost to the ground leaving one, do it in the fall. With the onset of spring in the cut branches of young shoots appear, they need to fill up the loosened ground, but leaving the top open. A year later, the shoots, which firmly took root sever and planted.

A more advanced approach gardeners green cuttings. But it is necessary to use greenhouses.
