United Kingdom Gb

i have two blackcurrant plants and would like to know how well they may grow and how hardy they are they are ben nevis and ben lomond



Depends on your soil, and where you are. We have both of these growing in rich soil in a cold area and they thrive. The only problem we ever have with them is birds pinching the fruit!
