Vitis vinifera ‘Phoenix’ should be pruned annually to maintain the health and productivity of the bush. Proper pruning can encourage bush to produce more fruit, and also help to control disease and pests. The best time to prune gooseberries is during their dormant season, typically late winter or early spring, before new growth begins. When you start pruning, the first step is to remove any dead, diseased, or damaged wood. Cut these branches back to healthy wood. Next, remove any shoots that have grown from the base of the bush, as well as any old or unproductive canes. Gooseberries typically produce fruit on the 2-year-old wood, and it is important to maintain a balance between the old wood and the new wood. You should also remove any shoots that are growing in the center of the bush, which can prevent good air circulation and lead to disease problems. Then you should thin out the remaining canes, leaving 4-6 strong canes per bush, and prune them back to about 4-6 inches from the ground.

Pest, Diseases and Wildlife
