How do I care for my Ribes?
This red berry plant grows quickly and is easy to care for. You can prune it into shape all year round. It is best to fertilize young plants with organic fertilizer in the autumn every year. For older plants, it is best not to do this too much as this will negatively affect its growth.
Can I prune the Redcurrant?
After the winter, you can prune it back by about 25 cm. If you do not prune it, this plant will still produce berries, because it produces its fruit on mature branches. Before the harvest, you could possibly cut back some of its non-fruit bearing branches. Do not remove too many leaves because they will ensure adequate nutrient absorption.
