Bare Root bushes available from Late October to May.

Bushs are grown on a short leg. After planting shorten all shoots by about half their lenght to encourage a strong framework. Subsequent fruiting is encouraged by spur pruning.

All soft fruits are self fertile.


Prior to planting eliminate all perennial weeds. If the soil is acid mix in lime, add organic matter such as compost or manure to light sandy soils. On heavier soils, which are poorly drained, planting on raised beds is beneficial. The incorporation of sand is also helpful. Before planting dig in a handful of fertiliser such as Growmore.

I've just received 3 half standard currants and I must say I'm extremely impressed. Much larger than expected. As always, excellent service from ordering through to arrival of goods ( just 4 days from ordering). Looking forward to sampling this new variety.

See under Pluot Purple Candy for my overall comments on receipt of my order. My husband has many years experience of growing fruit and was very impressed by how large and well-shaped a redcurrant bush has been sent

So far so good. Nice clear directions and progress through the transaction. Especially good as you stock the items I'd searched for by many visits to different websites. Even better that you are quite close to my home!
