planting bareroot black currants
Just curious, Raintree's lil' guide recommends for black currants to cut them pretty much a few inches off the ground.
I cut the foot long branches about halfway as I was a lil' scared to go all the way to almost ground level.
Most of the plants are European black currants and one is the Crandall black currant which was even taller, maybe 20in tall when I got it (i was even more scared to cut that one so far back).
Anyway just curious if I should heed their advice and cut super low. Maybe they recommend to cut a few inches off the ground since they think most of their bareroots won't have alot of roots to match the top of the plant, or is there some other reasons, like forming the bushy part of the plant lower?
