A guide to choosing the right size

Blackmoor Nursery is one of very few Nurseries in the UK offering gardeners the opportunity to buy Blackcurrant bushes direct from our Nursery. 

All orders are despatched in one delivery. If your order contains both bare root and container grown plants then we can only despatch when all plants are ready.

4 Litre = Container grown and can be planted all year round. The size refers to the number of litres of compost that the container holds.

Bare Root = Field grown plants that have been freshly lifted and supplied with no soil around the roots. Only available during the dormant period November-April
2 Year Bush = A two year old plant. Generally will have 3-4 shoots. 

1 Year Plant = Single shoot, around 20cm in height.

90cm Half Standard = The fruiting variety is grafted onto the stem at 90 cm above the ground level. Will require supporting with a stake.

Blackcurrants were traditionally used only for jams, pies and puddings, and they tasted great. More recently, there are varieties the size of small grapes (Big Ben) which are tasty eaten by themselves, with ice cream or cream. Mixed with other fruit, they are delicious. An easy crop to grow in the garden, they are however expensive in the supermarkets. Home grown, they are almost free and packed full of vitamins, especially vitamin C. 

Blackcurrants: Plant 5 ft (1.5 m) apart with 5 ft or more between rows. Plant blackcurrants firmly and deeply so that good strong young growth will come from the base.

Bare Root Only: After planting always cut back all the shoots to about 1” (2.5 cms) from the ground

Potted Plants: Do not need cutting down. Prune in subsequent years by removing about a third of the wood to encourage young basal shoots.
