This.

The need for the pruning of Ribes should meet up with all these lands without!

I am willing to prune anyone's edibles and redistribute the cuttings to any accepting place.

Please pipe up and share in life distribution...

Will

I am too far away to help out but I wondered how you root gooseberry cuttings. I have dug and divided these old clumps surviving at an old housesite on our land. That method does well for me but I love to root things too. Would you use new growth or older? When I prune I am always cutting out some of the oldest canes and thinning out others...leaving a few of each, one, two and three year old canes. Mine are very small berries and tastey the years they produce well and need no extra watering here but I have never figured out how to stop pruning them and still get fruit.
