This plant is deciduous so it will lose all its leaves in autumn, then fresh new foliage appears again each spring.

  • Position: full sun or partial shade
  • Soil: any well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

    Long trusses of plump, aromatic fruits, hang from the stems of this strong-growing Dutch redcurrant in late summer and autumn. Flowering (and fruiting) a little later than average, it's an excellent option for areas that are prone to late frosts, and the acidic berries can be used in a wide range of summer puddings and pies.

  • Garden care: Bare-root plants should be planted out as soon as they arrive. If this is not possible, they can be heeled in temporarily (covering their roots with soil) or potted up. Before planting, soak the rootball in a bucket of water for half an hour and make sure to incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole. 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 prune out weak branches only.
