currants to grow in our garden-then what do do??
I'm fairly new to this forum, so I'm hoping some can help me out here. I'm a huge fan of the English Garden/Cottage Garden style and was interested in growing black currants, as they seem like a good plant to add to what we currently grow here. I've only had them in a scone mix, what else can be made with currants?? They are sort of like small raisins, or dried cranberries aren't they? If we grow them, I'd like to incorporate them into fun things we can cook with our two children, ages almost 13 and 11 yo. Do these require a large area to grow, do I need a trellis or fence line for them, etc. Any info would be most welcomed!
