We have three blackcurrant bushes in the back of the garden. They are well established, but we dont know how old they are as they were here when we moved in.
This year two of the bushes are 'sick'. The leaves are shrivelled, the leaves are spotted with yellow, the branches have a kind of white/yellow moss on them. The plant flowered but now the berries are either very small or the place where they should be is brown and dead. The third blackcurrant bush, has big green leaves, and big healthy berries. We did cut all of them back in the spring - as adviced, removing the diseased wood, and any crossing branches.
What can we do to help the other two berry plants? Do you think the third berry plant will be affected by the two sick ones?
Thanks for your help.
