Blackcurrant – Ben Lomond (Potted)

(1 Plant)

Delivery from early June


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. Our blackcurrant plants come in biodegradable pots that you can plant straight into the ground (or into a larger pot)

Number of plants: 1 (3 litre biodegradable pot)

Variety: Ben Lomond

In the kitchen: Blackcurrants are perfect for summery puddings, great for making jams and can easily be frozen.
