Hi thanks for all your replies. Will keep an eye  on bramble thanks Oldcompostheap. 

looked at pictures I had from visiting house when buying and could not see any ribex pink flowers on the bush as my mum has loads of those so she would have recognised It. Wll wait nd see what next spring brings I guess. Thanks all again

Not that I can see. There are lots of think woody branches coming up so can I prune right back to about two foot high do you think so get some new growth coming up ? 

Huge thanks for all your help forum friends will be a regular reader and poster I can tell xx

Hi having just moved I have identified a huge bush in my garden as a blue currant bush? But there is very little on the net it seems about them. Can someone please tell me whether I should prune it hard now as most of the growth looks woody and would like to make it smaller and bushier for next year. Also only has a handful of currants this year so would love to change this thanks for any help!!
