Cuttings of flowering currant - when to plant out?
East Yorkshire, United Kingdom
I have nine cuttings that have taken of a flowering currant. I have just potted them on each into their own three inch pot and they all have a pretty good root system on. They are about eight inches high. I would like to plant them along a fence to create a hedge / barrier. How big do they need to be before I plant them out? Soil is fairly good but they would be in slight shade from a huge willow tree. Main thing is they would have to fight with the nettles coming through from the neighbours which I try to keep cut back but feel it's a losing battle. Oh and also the dog and the child with footballs!!!
