Best places/prices for currants and blackberries.

Where are the best places to get currants and blackberries? I'm on a super tight budget but would like to add another goosberry or currant to my backyard. I'm getting a Hinomaki Red and I've ordered some blueberry bushes from nourse farms and hansens bush pie cherry tree (or however it is spelled)from gurneys. I'm sorely tempted to get another blueberry bush an elizabeth or ka bluey and one or two more currant or gooseberry bushes but I don't know if I can afford that on top of all of the ammendments I need for my soil!

Could I propagate the gooseberry or blueberries from a cuttings right after i get them?

I bought some Currants for $1.23 a piece at Lowes last week. They are getting rid of their bare root stock in my neck of the woods. I also got a great deal on a Jostaberry and some blueberries.

Try Autumn Ridge Nursery. They are guaranteed to have the lowest prices in the USA.

Don't use Autumn Ridge. Check their ratings out at Dave's Garden website.
