Advice please re pruning black currant bushes. When and how much?
This year we had very little fruit,

Nice to be back by the way!



The fruit grow on the previous year's stems so you'll get more next year. Wait a while & it'll lose it's leaves so you can see the stems better. You prune to create a 'goblet' shape, like you were cupping both hands together to catch a ball. Cut the middle stems out for better air circulation then any unhealthy looking bits & anything that's crossing & might rub off bark in the wind & be a way for disease to get in
