We have a Blackcurrant bush that is old which didn't fruit very well this year. I've cut it back in the hope it will fruit better but also have bought a new one. My question is should I keep the new one in the GH for the first winter or will it be OK to plant out now, I'm thinking out as it was outside when we bought it but I'm not sure. Also is there anything I should do to it like cutting it back if so by how much, it's not very big but has three health branches.
I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
At least, that was the advice I followed, but mine were bareroot, not potted, but I think it must work the same....perhaps double check that!
I was lucky earlier in the year they were pruning trees and putting the branches through the shredder. I said to one of the chaps that would be useful in his garden, he ask if I'd like some so I have to 120lt compost bags full of it sitting open to the weather will use some of that.
