Thanks for the links.
I think you may have posted the first link on a previous thread, seeing the size of the gooseberry bushes in the background is what got me thinking, the space my plants were in, is to small. Excellent advise on pruning though, know now why the white currant didn't fruit this year. The gooseberry didn't fruit either it was attacked by flys early on in the season so I had to cut off the fruiting branches.
To cut to the chase - The area's to small me thinks to leave them there for another season so close together. Taking cuttings sounds a good option though, how would I do this? ..and would the cuttings be ok in a pot over winter?
I was thinking of moving the gooseberry to give the currant plants more room, space these out better and grow a cordon - bush -cordon if you see what I mean.
