Why We Love It

'Ben Sarek' is a deciduous shrub that sprouts juicy blackcurrants during summer.

These glossy fruits are easy to pick from the hardy plant, which can reach approximately 1.5 metres in height and spread.

How to Plant

'Ben Sarek' likes full sunlight, and prefers moist, well-draining soil that's clay, loam or sand-based. A neutral pH level is best.

Into the Ground

  1. Choose a spot for planting with plenty of sunlight.
  2. Dig a hole in the ground that's double the size of the rootball.
  3. Take your plant out of its pot.
  4. Pop it in the hole and coat the roots with compost.
  5. Water your plant generously.
  6. Give it a good coating of mulch over winter.

Into a Pot

  1. Fill your pot with plenty of multipurpose compost.
  2. Dig a hole twice the size of the rootball.
  3. Take your plant out of its temporary container and pop it gently in the hole.
  4. Coat the roots with compost and pat this down gently.
  5. Give it a generous water and leave it in the sun.
