black currant bush

black currant bush

Progress report on the Black current bush. It has put lots of leaf on, and has got little flower buds on. It also has a fair amount of greenfly. I have sprayed it, and given it 2 companion Marigold plants.

Well that answers my question. What a good idea. Perhaps I'll have room to grow some fruit trees in tubs.

Hi Hywel, we ordered these bins on the Internet fron Wiliknsons because they were green, everybody elses were black, we paid a £5 for deliver and they came next day. My husband put drainage holes in, and off we went. They have all got flower buds on, so hopefully we will get some fruit this year. Love marge.

Thanks Marge. Maybe I'll get some bins like yours. I already have some for making compost. I put lots of holes in them and the compost should be ready in two of them now.
