Blackcurrant - Ribes nigrum 'Ben Lomond' (2-3L)

Blackcurrant Ben Lomond

£6.99

This is a strong growing deciduous variety which produces large crops of vitamin rich blackcurrants in mid-summer. The sweet tasting fruits are produced on the previous year's growth and keep very well if frozen. They develop into heavy clusters all along the stems, hanging down low towards the ground under their own weight.

A forked stick can be used to hold them up if they droop too low or start resting on the ground. Hand weed and place a mulch around the base of the plant in late winter. Prune when dormant (late autumn to late winter), avoiding young wood as this is what the fruit forms on. On more mature plants, remove weak shoots and those leaning towards the ground.

Buying Fruit Trees/Bushes from Jacksons Nurseries

Unlike many garden centres, supermarkets and some nurseries here at Jacksons Nurseries we sell the majority of our stock all year round. Our stock is for the most part grown outdoors making it far hardier than those grown under glass and/or only sold ‘In Season’.

Here at Jacksons Nurseries we would favour a hardy outdoor grown plant every time. They are far less likely to suffer from the shock of being planted in colder conditions and they will begin to establish more rapidly the following spring. This can mean that they don’t look like a ‘picture perfect’ plant when purchased out of season but with the correct care and a little time you’ll have a wonderful plant to enjoy for many years to come.
