How to take care of Blackcurrant Ice

If supplied as bare root plants please soak the bare roots for 12-18 hours (do not exceed 24 hours). This allows them to take up the maximum amount of water without doing any injury to the plant. For better results it is best to mix the soil with some organic matter and plant in clumps.

Blackcurrant Ice will benefit by placing mulch around the base each spring and remove faded flower heads to encourage new growth. Blackcurrant Ice do not always produces flowers in their first summer and are not a long-lived perennial, so Blackcurrant Ice can be replaced them every 3-4 years.

Cut down stems once the flowering is over and Blackcurrant Ice will re-appear next year. If Blackcurrant Ice finds a good home, self-seeding can be counted upon and can be sown in early spring under glass.

Blackcurrant Ice are prone to a fungal disease, known as rust, spray with a general anti fungicide during early summer. PLEASE NOTE: all parts of this plant if harmful if eaten.
