  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Other features: small to medium, well-flavoured berries (mid-July)
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    An old favourite which is a strong growing variety with small, good flavoured fruit and heavy yields. The flowers are produced later than most redcurrants and the branches tend to spread with age. All currants are easy to grow and perfect for all gardens as they are not fussy about soil or aspect.

  • Garden care: Prepare the ground well before planting. Remove all weeds and dig in plenty of well-rotted manure in to the area. Space at 1.5m intervals and once planted apply a mulch of well-rotted manure every spring, as well as a nitrogen and potassium fertiliser. Make sure the plant is watered in dry weather and net the bushes to protect the currants from birds. In the first year, prune back to one bud above soil level in winter. After that only prune out weak branches.

      Hello Darshana, The best time to plant these is in the autumn or the spring, but you can plant throughout winter as long as the ground is not frozen. I hope this helps. Helen Plant Doctor
