    A heavy cropping redcurrant bush to grow
    This bright and juicy redcurrant plant is an extremely heavy cropper and perfect for UK conditions. This variety is great for growing in containers, which helps to keep things simple as the plant will maintain its bush-like shape fairly easily without needing much in the way of training or pruning – we like things that are easy! It will do well in sun or partial shade. Re-pot the plant into a slightly larger container every three years, and you should get good results. The redcurrant plant will come in a biodegradable pot – you can plant it into a bigger pot like that.

    Number of plants: 1 (potted)

    Variety: Jonker van Tets

    In the kitchen: Redcurrants are perfect to use in sweet and savoury sauces, smoothies, jams, jellies, and pies.

    (1 Plant)

    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.

    Translucent pink currants with amazing scent

    This is a slightly more unusual addition to the fruit garden with beautiful translucent pink currants that have a wonderful scent and are bursting with sweet, juicy flavour. Fruits ripen from mid July. If you’re new to growing currants, this is a great place to start – you needn’t worry about pruning other than pruning out the weaker branches over autumn/winter. Great for containers, or grown in the ground.

    Number of plants: 1 (3 litre biodegradable pot)

    Variety: Gloire de Sablon

    In the kitchen: This harvested berry is delicious in summery puddings, used for making jams or even freezing.
