Gooseberry bushes are really cold hardy. Make sure you place your growing Gooseberries 3-4 ft. apart. The rows should be 8-9 ft. apart to allow enough room for the growing Gooseberry plants to spread. You can grow your Gooseberry plants as free standing bushes. Remember, though, that you can train your Gooseberry bushes to grow on a hedgerow or as shrubs that resemble trees.
