Purchased 3-4 years ago. Plant has gone gangbusters. Last Fall pruned severely sad it became huge and visitors could barely enter yard as it is situated at deck corner and extended into walkway. Once severely pruned thought no fruit 2020. Lol. It has become ginormous once again heavily laden w currants.nancy d
Picking and preserving my priority for today!!!
I've never had such a pitiful plant. This is my third year having the plant and it's still only 6" tall!!! As soon as I received it, it got a rust and completely defoliated. The next year it started out looking good, then in the summer looked like it was about to die and never regrew any leaves. This year I see some new leaves at the base. Again, it's only 6" tall and most of it looks dead. I'm a professional landscape designer with tons of knowledge on growing plants. Nearly everything I grow thrives but not this. It's in a good growing spot and Ive done things to try and help out along, but I believe I got a bad plant. It's pitiful and Ive wasted enough time with it. Money wasted and time spent trying to grow this fruit. Description days you can get fruit in one year and Ive wasted 3 in just trying to get it to grow at all.Katrina Kelly
