Blackcurrant and Redcurrant Plants

Growing blackcurrants and redcurrants is easy and produces large crops of delicious berries packed with nutrients, as well as attracting pollinators to your garden. Bare root currant plants are available to plant from November to March, offering strong and healthy blackcurrants and redcurrants at even better prices. They establish in your garden quickly over winter for a flying start to your growing season. Find out more about choosing your plants, where to grow them and how to care for your currants.

Choose your Blackcurrant and Redcurrant Plants

For a delicious cooking fruit, go for blackcurrants. Choose Ben Lomond, Ben Connan or Big Ben for perfect pies and jams - they’re all frost resistant too. Redcurrants can be eaten raw and will thrive even in North facing gardens - both Rovada and Red Lake are high cropping varieties. For something different, try blackcurrant-gooseberry hybrid Jostaberry, superfood Cranberry or Nordic superstar Lingonberry.

Where to grow Blackcurrant and Redcurrant plants

Blackcurrants need full sun, so position your plants in a warm, sheltered spot. They do best when planted in the ground - make sure the soil is well drained and kept moist. Redcurrants can cope with colder conditions, thrive in pots and can be trained. Both kinds of currants are hardy enough to grow in any area of the UK.

Blackcurrant and Redcurrant plant care tips

Currant plants are largely trouble-free and will reward you with large crops. Feed them with a high potash fertiliser in the growing season and be sure to harvest them on a dry day. Remove any weeds around your plants by hand, as the roots are easily damaged. For more on planting, growing and caring for your currant plants, read our Full Care Guide.
