    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.
