Product Information

Bursting with flavour and Vitamin C, the large glossy black fruit of Ben Lomond cover the branches of this completely new type of blackcurrant in mid-summer. Unlike most others, which require a lot of space to grow, this compact beauty only ever grows to 3ft (1m) making it perfect for the smallest of gardens grow it in a border, a large pot or even plant several to make a fruiting hedge. Really easy to grow, Ben Lomond will thrive in a sunny, sheltered spot out of strong winds and prefers well-drained soil (or compost). Plants are as tough as old boots and have flowers that are resistant to frost. All you need to do to ensure a bumper crop is feed them well with blood, fish and bone in mid-spring, followed by a dose of poultry manure or another high nitrogen plant food, in June.

Top Tips

If you're short on space, blackcurrants can be grown in a large pot.

Care Information

Blackcurrants prefer moist, well-drained soil in full sun, or light shade.
Keep well-watered.
Dig a hole at least 2x the diameter of the root ball and spread the roots out. Plant 6cm (2.25in) deeper than previously to encourage young shoots to develop from the base.
Mix the soil from the hole with well-rotted manure and backfill. Firm in and water.
In late winter, feed with a balanced fertiliser, following the instructions.
Weed and mulch around the plant in late winter to suppress weeds. Avoid hoeing near the base of the bush where new shoots are developing.
Prune from late autumn to late winter. Fruit forms on young wood, so remove older wood, leaving the young shoots.
If growing in a pot, choose one that is around 45-50cm (18-20in) in diameter and use a good-quality compost (John Innes No 3 is ideal).
Repot every 2-3 years into the same pot or slightly larger. Trim back some of the roots and tease away the old soil replacing it with fresh JI No 3 compost.
