On Sunday, Camilla showed us how to prune the black currants to encourage lots of sideshoots and , eventually, fruit.
Blackcurrant need to be pruned to an outward facing bud close to the ground
this leaves very little!
Prunings longer than 20cm can be used as hardwood cuttings: trim off straight below a node at the bottom and ant an angle above a bud near the top.
Then push the cuttings into soft ground: with luck some will take root:
They can be moved to a permanent position next year
