I have gooseberry and blackcurrant bushes which have grown out. Can I cut them both back to the stump now and will this kill them?
My blackcurrant bushes are looking very sick. The leaves have been discolouring and dying off for some weeks, and some fruiting shoots are now dead. The bushes cropped reasonably well, but they're under attack from something. The question is, what?
I've inherited some blackcurrant bushes which had a very poor yield this year. The branches are 5-6 feet long & very mature. How do I get control of the bushes & increase yield & still have a crop next year?
I have 4 Blackcurrant bushes that have yet to produce either flowers or fruit ever. They look extremly healthy!
Blackcurrant bushes are in a bad state with leaves holed and bad colour almost from the start. I bought them at a farmer's market early in the year and planted them with care. Close by are raspberry bushes which are also showing signs of stress with withered greying leaves already - these are late raspberries. Also in the same patch are strawberry plants which were new this year and leaves started to curl and discolour there also. Many strawberries were mishapen. Am attaching photographs.
What Black Currants variety would you recommend for this area?

My Dad has Blackcurrant bushes which for the third year in succession have flowered and before fruits form they fall to the ground, any suggestions as to what the problem might be?

My blackcuurant and gooseberry bushes have red spots/spores, (not sure what they are ) all up along the stems. any idea what it might be, and do I need to get rid of them, Its only thier second year in my garden.
I have a well established blackcurrant schrub which has a disease on the leaves. I was told it is "rust" and have started to treat it with a copper treatment which i use every forthnight. My question is, are the fruit safe to eat? long term will it rid the schrub of the disease or will i have to keep spraying every two weeks? i notice just before the two weeks are up the "rust" is showing again. Thanks
I have moved some fruit bushes from my late fathers garden and transplanted to my own the following day. I think gooseberry and raspberry and blackcurrant from what I can remember. I cut them back to about 4 feet. Do you think they will survive as I am unsure how much of the root I got. I also would like to ask you how do I kill grass around the bushes?
