Just yesterday i noticed a couple wild hazel growing under the canopy of a small patch of woods close by my home..then i spotted gooseberry and not just one quite a few dozen wild healthy growing gooseberrys weaving in and out underneath the canopy of the trees. There is such a abundance of berrys that have tip layered on there own that i was curious if i could take one home.. for my own yard so i can harvest them in my yard..my only concern was shocking these lovely berries as they have already leafed out any tips on getting one homewould be appreciated.

Gooseberry is very hardy. I would cut off some stems, wrap them in a wet cloth to bring them home. Strip off most their leaves, dip them in rooting hormone, plant them and keep them watered for the summer. I'm betting by next year they'll be doing just fine. Just make sure they're the gooseberries you want! We mostly have Sierra Gooseberry here, which is not the friendliest plant to harvest.

I have transplanted wild gooseberry into my food forest. The way I did it was I split a wild plant in half leaving half there and taking the other half. I have gave them zero attention and the are growing good. The original leaves got what I think is sunburnt from going from almost full shade to almost full sun but it recovered quickly even in a drought year.
