Currant


The Content Of The Article:

Location

They thrive on almost all soils that are not prone to waterlogging, and prefer a sunny to partially shaded spot

blossom

Currants bloom very early and are therefore late frosty. Similar to the gooseberries

cultivation

Planting time is in autumn, then the young shrubs or high stems can still form enough fine roots and thereby ensure the vigorous spring shoot. High trunks need a support post. A mulch layer of compost promotes soil life and protects the plants from dehydration. Space requirement: 1.5 - 2 square meters

cut

The first cut is required after planting. For this purpose, the strongest five to six shoots are cut in half and the remaining taken out completely. In plants with fewer than five shoots cut them back to two to three eyes (small buds) per shoot to promote the re-emergence. After that, cut the additional annuals by about a third. Further cutting measures: Over four-year-old wood is cut off in winter for rejuvenation just above the ground. Dead wood or stems which are too close are regularly to be cleared, so that more light and air can reach the shrubs in summer. Even high stems must be kept in strict shape. In each case six to eight Leitäste leave, this year on five eyes, and their side shoots cut back on two to three eyes

fertilizer

Currants want to be well and evenly supplied with nutrients. Depending on the condition of the soil, two or three times a year, chloride-free humus or mineral fertilizers are added

Diseases

By regular pruning and a balanced nutrient supply resistance is strengthened. Robust and disease-resistant varieties should be taken into account, as currants are susceptible to red pustules and powdery mildew
