Planting Gooseberry Bushes on the Allotment

Part one of my new allotment overhaul involves creating a space for fruit. The plan is to clear a quarter of the plot, and set aside for bushes. Grown traditionally, fruit bushes take up a fair amount of room, are low maintenance and harvesting can take place fairly leisurely, so they’re perfect for the allotment.
