Net your black­cur­rants

Garden News (UK) - - What To Do -

Keep an eye on your cur­rants as they’re com­ing into their own at the mo­ment and are nearly ready to harvest. Weed care­fully around the plants to re­duce grow­ing com­pe­ti­tion, wa­ter and feed them well, and check for pest dam­age – aphids can de­plete vigour, and there are many an­i­mals that will want to steal those juicy fruits! Net­ting is key to you get­ting as much fruit as pos­si­ble into the kitchen and not into the mouths of birds. Haxnicks Mi­cromesh still al­lows fruit to set while giv­ing a solid bar­rier from nib­blers. Bird scar­ers help, too.
