To keep your Gooseberries healthy and productive we need to prune then this is quite easy if you follow a few simple rules
Gooseberries make fruit in 2 places: little spurs on the old wood and at the base of side-shoots that grew the year before.

It should take 2 years to shape your plant into a sturdy framework of mostly upright branches which all point more or less away from the centre.

With a mature bush, you just need to keep the centre free of ingrowing branches and trim back the new season's side shoots to help divert energy to the berries that will appear at their bases.
If pruning a standard its exactly the same just on top of the main growing stem.
Always use Sharpe secateurs as clean cuts heal much better
Once the shape of the Gooseberry bush is established normally 2 or 3 years
its just a matter of maintaining the shape
SUMMER PRUNING: In the first week of July but no earlier, prune new side-shoots to 5 leaves. Dont prune the main branches unless the tips have mildew.

WINTER PRUNING: During the winter, cut back the leading stems by a third to a half of their new growth. Now shorten all the lateral side-shoots that you took down to 5 leaves in the summer: this time, cut them back to two buds. If you cut them back to three buds, you will get more, smaller but more fruit
