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.
The plant is grown organically. In other words, no chemical pesticides have been used to grow the plant. For a healthy garden!

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.
