Cape gooseberry

Cape gooseberry

I have grown some Cape Gooseberry plants from seed. One is fruiting now but the leaves are going brown at the edges and yellow and the fruits are falling off. I water it about once a week. It is indoors. Munroe, ., Co Mayo Posted: 13/11/2017

The brown edges are a good indicator that you may have missed watering for a few days and the plant has taken a setback, and it is reducing its burden.

But be careful as too much water can be equally damaging. Keep its compost just barely moist.

Place it in good light, though not a very sunny window in its current condition, and away from heat sources.
