How can I grow a currant berry bush?

What is the right climate?


Answer by  lois47 (383)

Currants grow best in humid, cool regions that also have at least a short period of cold in the winter as they need to go dormant. They can also be grown with some success in cool coastal climates.

Currants are easily grown in full sun in Zones 3-7. They are self-fruitful and grow in average garden soil. Fruit ripens in July through August.

These will do best if planted in late spring. Since the plant is a perennial, it will come back each year without having to replant. Make sure the bush is in a location that gets ample sunlight. When planting the bush, use compost rich soil for best results. You should also water the bush daily if it does not rain.
