  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: May and June
  • Flower colour: white, occasionally pink-tinted flowers
  • Other features: the flowers are followed by lustrous, large, black fruits like blackcurrants, useful for making a vitamin-rich jam

    Said to contain three times as many antioxidants as blueberries, these dark purple-red berries, which can be harvested in autumn, have a tart flavour when eaten raw, but are delicious when cooked and used in compotes, summer puddings and jams.

  • Garden care: Each year in February or March remove one in three of the older stems of established specimens.
