Why We Love It

'Big Ben' blackcurrant is named for its plump produce.

The sweet, glossy fruits appear during July and can be two or three times as big as other varieties.

How to Plant

Choose a sunny spot for 'Big Ben', with well-drained, moist soil. Any type of soil, but preferably pH-neutral, works well.

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.
