Planting+

Make sure the root ball is moist prior to planting by soaking it in a bucket of lukewarm water. Prepare a suitably sized hole and loosen the soil thoroughly. Plant the root ball of the mixed currant bush at the right depth in the planting hole. The top of the root ball should be slightly below soil level. Don't plant too deep! Fill the hole with soil and press firmly in and water immediately after planting. Currant bushes grow well in any type of garden soil in a sunny or part shaded spot. The planting distance between two bushes should be approx. three feet.   

Currant in a large planter

Did you know that a redurrant bush (Ribes) can also be grown in a large container on the patio or decking? A standard redcurrant bush remains slightly narrower and is therefore perhaps more suitable for being grown in a pot. However, even a regular redcurrant bush can also be planted in a large pot.
Choose a nice sturdy container and layer the bottom with potsherds or even gravel. Fill 2/3rds of the pot with potting compost, possible mixed with some sand and/or garden soil. Soak the plant overnight in a bucket of lukewarm water prior to planting. Make a wide hole in the soil in the pot or container sufficient for the root ball to fit in, remove the currant (Ribes) from its nursery pot and place the root ball in the hole at the right depth, spreading the roots around the hole. Fill the hole with compost and press firmly into the container, leaving about 4 cm free, from top of the soil to edge of the pot. Water generously and stand the potted plant in sun or part shade.

Care+

Currants are very easy-to-grow fruits. During dry periods water more often. In spring, give them some potassium-rich garden fertiliser. After three years, in March you can prune all of its branches by 1/3. It is also possible to train the branches down with wires. To protect against birds eating the buds it is advisable to put netting over the bush.

Currants in the winter

All redcurrant 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 severe, it won't hurt to store your bush in a sheltered spot - even an unheated shed for a short while.

Extra+

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