Oh heck that one's a monster - sorry as Dove says it will grow and grow.  Its not easy to use for basket work.  Can you coppice it and then use the well dried sticks the next year for attractive rustic supports.  If you use then when they're still green they will root away happily and spread your problem

I've currently (sorry for pun) got 1 of each black, red and white currant bushes in a shallow raised bed.  What is the method of cultivation that will give me the most prolific yield?  There isn't much space and wondered if growing as a cordon for example, would give me as much as a bush, or is there another way to get a good yield without huge spaces being used.

Thanks for help DG

probably would be Lulu, is this something you've planted or is it in a hedgerow somewhere (Pip from apple core thrown away?)  If they are about cherry sized they could be crab apples - which make lovely jelly in the autumn

if you want a perennial, How about an omphaloides verna or the other one I can't remember its name.  a small bright blue flower from mar/april on a low growing evergreen mat of leaves.  It's similar to a forget me not and is low growing - sorry I've tried to upload a picture but don't seem to do it at the moment

Help identify a yellow flower please
