Before planting, amend the soil with a well-rotted manure and add a balanced fertiliser. Dig a hole at least 2 times the diameter of the root ball and spread the roots out when planting. Plant deeply, at least 6cm (2.25in) deeper than it was previously. Firm in well and give a thorough water.

How to care for Blackcurrant


Prune when dormant from late autumn to late winter by removing older wood, leaving the young branched. If growing in a container, they will require repotting every 2-3 years. When doing so, trim back some of the roots and tease away the old soil before planting again.
