Frost resistant

Buyers Guide for Blackcurrant Bushes

Welcome to our specialist range of blackcurrant bushes for sale. The blackcurrant bushes that we offer are all strong well rooted 2 year old bushes to ensure the best results possible in your garden. 

THE NEW VARIETIES WITH FROST RESISTANCE The Scottish Crop Research Institute and East Malling Research Station have developed new varieties that tolerate adverse weather conditions, flower later to avoid spring frosts and crop heavily, consistently from year to year. Always producing a quality fruit and consistently outyielding the older varieties. We particularly recommend these blackcurrant bush varieties - Ben Sarek for it's compact growth and big crops, Ben Connan for extra large berries, and Ben Nevis for hardy durability, yield and extra frost resistance.

Blackcurrant bushes should be planted 5-6'apart, except Ben Sarek which can be spaced as close as 3.5' between bushes.
