Ribes rubrum 'Jonkheer van Tets'
Fresh red berries.
Redcurrants. Fresh from your own garden. That's so summery! The currant 'Jonkheer van Tets' (Ribus rubrum) is has a tart flavour. We grow these self-pollinating berries in our garden, balcony or terrace. The shrub attracts butterflies and bees. You will receive the (bare-rooted) currant in sugar cane sacking. This is more environmentally friendly than plastic nursery pots. The roots are shipped fresh from the ground. They are already one year old. This gives them additional strength, enabling them to grow faster than they would in a nursery pot. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. They flower better and they are more economical. Bare-root stock plants grow when it becomes warmer. They are winter-hardy perennials. They can be planted at any time, provided that the ground is not frozen. The fruit bush blossoms in the spring. This is when it reveals its green and white flowers. A crop will be ready to harvest from summer onwards in the second year after planting. Currants require support while growing. Be sure to secure the vines to a climbing base or woven structure. Sufficient light is needed to ensure good growth. For this reason, the fruit bush should be planted in full sun. The currants will grow in any type of soil. It's best to give the tree extra water during dry spells.

Make sure the roots of your Ribes rubrum 'Jonkheer van Tets' are moist prior to planting. Give them a good soaking overnight in a bucket of lukewarm water. Redcurrant bushes grow in any garden soil. Plant yours in a nice sunny spot, or part shade. Plant more bushes at around 3 feet apart. Dig a sufficiently wide hole and loosen the soil with a fork. Place the shrub at the right depth in the planting hole and spread the roots well in the hole, about 10-15 cm below soil level. Don't plant too deep! Fill the hole with soil and heel well in. Water immediately after planting.

Currant in a large planter

Are you aware that a currant bush will also thrive in a large planter or container on your patio or decking! Prior to planting, soak the roots overnight in a bucket of lukewarm water. Make sure you use a nice sturdy container and layer the base with lots of potsherds or even gravel, cover with potting compost – perhaps with added sand and/or garden soil – fill about 2/3rds of the pot. Make a good sized hole and loosen the soil. Plant your bush at the right depth spreading the roots around the hole. The roots should eventually be around 10-15 cm below soil level. Do not plant too deep! Fill the hole with more soil and press well in. Leave around 4 cm space to the top of the container then water generously. Stand the flower pot or container in a nice sunny spot.


Red Currant 'Jonkheer van Tets' are very easy-to-grow currant bushes. During dry periods water more often. In the spring, give them some potassium-rich garden fertilizer. After three years, you can prune all of its branches by 1/3. It is also possible to train the branches down with wires. To protect against the birds from eating the buds it is advisable to put a netting over the bush.

Currants in the winter

All currant bushes are perfectly hardy and will easily get through the winter even without extra protection. However, they are somewhat more sensitive to frost if in a pot or planter and if the winter is particularly severer, it won't hurt to store your bush in a sheltered spot - even an unheated shed for a short while.


What is more delicious in summer than the taste of currants that are full of vitamins!
