Organic currants from your garden!

Redcurrants. Fresh from your own garden. That's so summery! The currant 'Jonkheer van Tets' (Ribus rubrum) is organically grown and has a tart flavour. We grow these self-pollinating berries in our garden, balcony or terrace. The shrub attracts butterflies and bees. The perennial fruit bush blossoms in the spring, revealing 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.
The plant is grown organically. In other words, no chemical pesticides have been used to grow the plant. For a healthy garden!

Planting

These plants like light soil that has good drainage and is rich in humus. The results will be even better if a handful of enriched potting soil is added. Choose a sunny or partially sheltered position where the plants will be less exposed to frost. Make sure the root balls are well-moistened before planting the currant bushes by soaking them in a bucket of lukewarm water. Prepare a suitable hole and plant the bushes at the appropriate depth. The top of the root balls should be slightly below ground level. Don't plant them too deep! Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Water immediately after planting. Spacing between the bushes is approximately one metre.

Currant in a large planter

Did you know you can easily grow redcurrants in a large planter on the patio or decking? Standard redcurrant bushes are slightly smaller so rather obviously better suited to a planter but, your 'normal' redcurrant bush can also be potted up without problem.
Do choose a nice sturdy planter. Layer the base with potsherds or even a couple of bricks for weight then fill about 2/3rds with potting compost with some added sand and normal garden soil. Remove the redcurrant bush from its nursery pot and plant it with the roots spread out a little. Fill up with more of the same potting compost. Press well in. Leave a good 4 cm space from top of soil to the edge of the pot, for watering. Water generously then stand your large planter with redcurrant bush in a nice sunny spot.

Care

Currant bushes are very easy-to-grow. 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 1/3rd. 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.

Extra

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