Pre-planting care for blackcurrant ojebyn
I bought a blackcurrant obejyn from the factory shop the other day and won't be planting it until next weekend - my kitchen garden book suggests it's ok to plant in the winter.
It is in some dry material, looks like coir compost, wrapped in polythene and then in a cardboard sleeve. Thinking I was helping it I gave it a drop of water and have put it at the top of our (indoor) basement steps near a sheltered north facing window so it is cool but not in sun.
I'm now not sure if should have watered it, so would appreciate thoughts on that.
Also I think I should acclimatise it before planting, so is next weekend ambitious?
It has some lovely buds on it, none yet open
Thanks for any hints
