Yay, my dreams have come true, I got me some blackcurrants! These plants are two years old, so they hopefully will fruit this year. I went so early they hadn’t even been potted up yet at the greenhouse, I bought them bareroot! So I potted them up when I got home.
These will find a home somewhere in the yard properly, but for right now, they’re in pots.
