Genus: Ribes.

Species: Ribes rubrum.

Last year this red currant was covered in aphids and twisted and in a sorry state ... and not a currant in sight.

But, by the power of a pot of chives sunk in the row - hover flies just can't keep away ... I've been scratching my head as to where the aphids have gone this year ;)
