Lots and lots of little flowers - big expectation. This blue gooseberry was planted last spring. Grows very well. Gooseberry roots are just under the soil, so while weeding extra attention is required, so you don't disturb the roots.
I will not prune it this year, to see the produce next year. If you decide to prune it, do it after picking all fruits. Cut back only the stems which were fruiting this year.
