A popular blackcurrant variety for UK growing
This is one of the most popular varieties of blackcurrant grown in the UK – well suited to colder climates and frost pockets – and requires minimum pruning between seasons. It is also quite resistant to mildew. It can be happily grown in pots, but be sure to water regularly during the summer as pots dry out quite quickly. You can let this variety grow quite bushy, just pruning lightly in autumn to remove/trim back weaker shoots. These plants come bare rooted.
Number of plants: 1 bare rooted plant for winter planting
Variety: Ben Lomond
In the kitchen: Blackcurrants are perfect for summery puddings, great for making jams and can easily be frozen.Delivery Information: Bare-Rooted Fruit and Strawberry Runners will be shipped in January (and possibly February, depending on weather/availability) for winter planting while the plants are dormant.
