What kind of soil for potted Currant/Gosseberries/Jostaberry
I planted a gooseberry in a mix of about 30% perlite 30% topsoil, 20% black cow compost, and 20% potting soil.
Well.. I don't know what the issue was but the gooseberry grew OK for about 3 months and then developed problems. I had it sitting inside the air-conditioned house because it is too hot for them outside, even had to move it farther away from the window since sun actually dried couple of leaves couple weeks earlier.
Well it was doing alright after those couple of burnt leaves and then suddenly took for the worst and got "lump" leaves that drooped and now starting to dry up as well.
Soil seemed moist inside, as far as I could tell it was not water-logged either and was draining quiet quickly after watering.
Any suggestions on the mix? I got couple of currants, gooseberries and a Jostaberry coming in that I want to put in pots as well.
I looked online but there was not much info on potting currants or gooseberries.
