I support some of my heavily laden blackcurramt stems with bamboo canes. I do it to expose,the fruit to,the sun and create some space. Just tie back some of the canes.....get some eye protectors that fit,on the end of bamboo canes too.
No, blackcurrant bushes should not be goblet,shaped....gooseberries, red currants, etc., yes but not blackcurrants. You want lots of healthy stems coming directly,from the ground and you prune to,achieve this. After fruiting ask again about pruning them
