Blackcurrant bush problem?
Can anyone help identifying if there is a problem with our blackcurrant bush?
We are approaching the second summer in our new home with a inherited established garden. The blackcurrant bush bore little fruits last year, esp in comparison the the redcurrant and gooseberry neighbours.
This year, the blackcurrant buds are a little behind the other two (few leaves) and I worry there is a problem with the plant. The buds are very round - are these bug mite balls?
Please can anyone advise based on the attached images? I’m hoping the whole plant isn’t infected!
Thank you for any help you can provide!
