Planting and flowering details
Harvesting Details
  • Planting
  • Make sure that the roots of Ribes are moistened well prior to planting. Soak the roots in a bucket of lukewarm water overnight. The currant grows well in any garden soil. Choose a spot in full sun or part shade. The planting distance between the bushes should be about one metre. 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
    Did you know that currants can also be grown in a large container on the patio or decking? A standard currant bush remains slightly narrower and is therefore perhaps more suitable for being grown in a pot. However, even a regular currant 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. The roots should be around 10 to 15 cm below soil level. Do not plant too deep! 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.
