Blackcurrant Bushes

Blackcurrants will thrive in a wet soil so long as it's rich in organic matter. They crop remarkably well for the space taken up,

Time spent to prepare the ground properly will repay you many times over the years. Even from a pot-grown blackcurrant you can get enough of a crop for some jars of jam.

There's a guide to growing blackcurrants on the site here: Grow Your Own Blackcurrants
