Redcurrants are easily grown fruits, once planted as hedges around herb and vegetable gardens. They crop well in sun or shade, and the same variety may be grown on south- and north-facing walls to give a succession of ripening dates. Plants develop a permanent system of fruiting sideshoots, and may be trained as fans, espaliers, cordons and standards, as well as bushes. Grow all kinds on a single clear stem, or leg, for easy maintenance. 'Raby Castle' is a fine old variety from 1820, still grown today for its high quality fruits. Net against birds and squirrels.
