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

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: moderately fertile, well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average to fast-growing
  • Flowering period: April
  • Hardiness: fully hardy

  • Garden care: In late summer remove any dead, diseased or crossing branches to maintain a healthy, open framework and reduce the flowered shoots to a strong, lower bud. Prune specimens grown as hedges immediately after flowering. After pruning apply a generous 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost around the base of the plant.

  • Pests and diseases: Ribes should never be planted near pine trees as it can be a host to white pine blister rust. It is also very susceptible to honey fungus, and aphids, leaf spot and powdery mildew can be a problem.
