What would be a good planting site for gooseberries and currants?
Gooseberries and currants prefer cool, moist, well-drained sites. Avoid poorly drained, wet soils and hot, dry sites. To discourage fungal diseases, such as powdery mildew, select sites with good air movement. Gooseberries and currants tolerate partial shade. However, maximum fruit yields are produced in areas that receive at least 6 hours of direct sun per day.
