At the time of planting, amend the planting area with garden compost and mix in well. Dig a hole that is as deep and as wide as the root ball and gently lower your plant into place. Backfill the planting area and water thoroughly to settle the soil.
Water regularly until they are better established. In spring, apply a mulch consisting of manure or compost to retain adequate moisture levels whilst providing additional nutrients. Ribes don’t require pruning unless it is to remove old, dead or damaged wood. Deadhead spent flowers and cut back to fresh new growth.
It is possible to propagate Ribes by hardwood cuttings in winter.
