Cape gooseberry new leaves yellowing and falling off, help!

I have several cape gooseberries flowering like mad, they are vigorous, however all the new growth is turning yellow and falling off. My first berry which was developing also turned yellow and fell off. What could be the issue? My soil is sandy and supposedly perfect for these plants.

Welcome to helpful gardener.

Without a zone, state (or province), and nation where this gooseberry is growing. offering seasonal advice is pretty speculative. You might want to amend your profile (or signature line) to include a USDA zone and state.

if you lived near me. I might note that your plant is going dormant in the correct season.
