The plants are growing well
The instructions on youtube were great. It was easy to plant them well. My however has nothing to do with your plants. I had an infection of sawflies last year. They first attacked our current bushes (5) and then the newly established gooseberries. Last year I tried a lame product. This year I'm ready with Pyrethrin, but I'm unsure when to start spraying. Should I wait for activity or make a preemptive strike. I worry about bees because the gooseberries are near our raspberries. There is a lot of bee activity in a month. Also, in the first year should I pinch the gooseberry blossoms? Thanks for any advise...

Response from Stark Bro's
Thank you for your feedback. I'm sorry to hear about the pest issue. Spraying should not be done while there are blooms present, as this will harm the local bees. You should follow the directions on the label of the product you have for when and how to use.

Love our gooseberries
This is our 2nd year for our pixwell gooseberries, they are loaded and look great, we anticipate a pie or 2. Last year we picked some, mixed with strawberries for a great dessert recipe.

Goose berries
I love my bushes...They are loaded with berries and cant wait for them to get ripe. Tried one yesterday and it was even sour-er than they should be. A little green. Beautiful bushes. I love Starks products

Loaded with fruit
One year after planting my Pixwell gooseberry bushes, they are thriving and loaded with fruit. I expect to be able to make a gooseberry pie and possibly a few small jars of preserves in this first year. I am very happy with my three gooseberry bushes.

Love the Pixwell!
We love our Pixwell Gooseberry. It has thrived and though it has not produced a lot of fruit yet, what it has made is delicious and the plant seems resistant to the many ills that befall gooseberries in Seattle.

Pixwell Gooseberry
The bushes are only in my garden for the second year. They stood the winter weather well. There has been some slight damage by dear. This my favorite Gooseberry variety. My grandparents kept several bushes. Remember to never plant gooseberries or currant near white pine trees, my grand parents did not know this and lost three large pine trees.
