Lada gooseberry is not particularly demanding for the composition of the soil. It can grow on sandy, clay or medium divided soils. However, it categorically not tolerate excessively acidic, wetlands and poorly warmed places.

The best place for landing is the south side, along the fence, retreating from the wall of 1.5 m. You should not land bushes at the site of the growth of raspberries, red or black currant, as well as the gooseberry, since they have the same pathogens of diseases. Bacteria and fungi remain in the ground, capable of hitting young seedlings. In addition, after these cultures of the soil are very exhausted.

To choose seedlings to come carefully. The root system should be well developed, with a central root and a large number of small roots. The color of them is light brown, without signs of diseases, dry, damaged. Escapes should be 2-3, height from 40 to 100 cm, light brown color, without damage.

In the southern regions and the middle lane, plant plant can be autumn (October). This time is enough to seedlings to root and successfully fall. In areas with a more severe climate, landing work is better transferred to the spring (April).
