Caring For Currant Shrubs

Few fruiting shrubs do well in shade, but Currant bushes grow in part shade and full shade! However, you will have the most fruit in more sun. Currant plants prefer a location with morning sun and part shade in the afternoon. Add that this darling warm-climate shrubs' ability to tolerate low moisture environments!

Another perk is the growth rate of these versatile shrubs! Currant bushes are deciduous, fast-growing plants that are densely branched and grow to about five feet tall to around 6 - 10 feet. They also require good air circulation. The annual growth is a single flush in the spring.

Heat and humidity tolerant in USDA hardiness zones 6 through 10, Currants do wonderfully in any shady location around your landscape!

Most Currant bushes are self-fertile, but some cultivars are partially self-sterile and will do best having another Currant plant nearby to produce more fruit. Currant fruits ripen 70 to 100 days after blossoming.

A 3-4 inch deep layer of mulch to keep the roots cool, and provide a protected location for your shrub. The north sides of a building are typically excellent for Currant plants for maintaining cooler soil temperatures. When soil temperatures exceed 85 degrees, the plants will collapse.

Currants prefer heavy soils that are rich in clay and have good moisture-retention qualities. They will not tolerate alkaline or salty soils. An acceptable soil pH for Currants is between 5.5 and 7.0.

Prune Currants when the plants are dormant in late winter or early spring. Remove any branches that are dead, diseased or are lying on the ground. After the first year of growth, remove all but six to eight of the most vigorous stems.

Prune yearly and regularly will keep younger canes that produce more fruit. A strong and healthy mature plant should have about eight canes that bear fruit. Replace some of the older canes with younger canes for top production. Renewal prune every 3-5 years to keep the youngest branches growing and removing the oldest least-productive stems.
