Currant on a stem 'Jonkheer van Tets' - Bare rooted - Hardy plant

Ribes rubrum 'Jonkheer van Tets'
Red berries on one stem
Redcurrants. Fresh from your own garden. That's so summery! The currant 'Jonkheer van Tets' (Ribus rubrum) is has a tart flavour. And it grows on an attractive stem. 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.

Ribes rubrum 'Jonkheer van Tets' is also available as a standard. Great for in the border between perennials, in a sunny or part shaded area! Easily grown in any type of soil. Recommended planting distance between plants should be about one metre. Make sure that the roots of ‘Jonkheer van Tets’ are moistened well prior to planting. Soak the roots in a bucket of lukewarm water overnight. Dig a large planting hole and thoroughly loosen the soil. Plant the bush at the right depth spreading the roots around the hole. Do not plant too deep – the roots should be about 10-15 cm below soil level. Fill the hole with soil and heel well in. Water generously after planting.

Currant in a large planter

Are you aware that a currant bush will also thrive in a container on your patio or decking? Standard currant bushes remain a bit smaller so are perhaps even more suited to being planted in a container but regular currant bushes will also do well in a large planter. It’s up to you.
Ensure a well-drenched root ball prior to planting - soak it overnight in a bucket of lukewarm water. Use a nice sturdy container for your currant bush. Layer the base with potsherds or a few bricks and cover with potting compost – perhaps with added sand and/or garden soil – to about 2/3rd. Plant your bush at the right depth and spread the roots around the hole. The roots should eventually be around 10-15 cm under soil level so be sure not to plant too deep! Fill the rest of the container and press well in. Be sure to leave enough room (about 4 cm from the top edge) and water your bush immediately after planting. Stand the container in a nice sunny spot.


The Standard Redcurrant ‘Jonkheer van Tets’ is a strong bush that requires little or no maintenance.

Cut back every other year (after harvesting) to encourage a bigger harvest in the years to follow. To do this, simply top all branches leaving 5 leaves per branch.

To totally rejuvenate the standard redcurrant, remove about half (or less) of the older branches. Leave at least 5 branches taking every precaution to avoid damaging the grafting point.

Harvest the berries in July.

Ribes rubrum 'Jonkheer van Test' (standard) in the wintertime

Redcurrant is very hardy but the grafting point is susceptible to frost. It is therefore advisable to protect this with garden fleece during the winter.


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

And even better - with the plant as a standard, you will hardly have to bend to harvest your berries!
