    Hi from a lottie holder in nearby Gosport.

    My neighbour on the plot had josterberries. They made very large bushes like blackcurrants. The fruit is a cross between blackcurrants and a small gooseberry. They would need to be planted a good 6ft between.

    Regards
    Beryl.

    Thanks Beryl. I might have to think about a 2nd plot soon. I have 5 rods at the moment which 4 years ago seemed loads..

    I know what you mean. This lottie gardening takes over, there is never enough space to do all you want to. We started with 5 rods 15 years ago and thought it would be enough but after planting fruit trees and soft fruit we now have 25 rods.
