Today it was the turn of the blackcurrant’s, they needed a good clean up, there seems to have been a lot of broken branches, I have to say the smell when cutting the branches was great, very special. The blackcurrant’s fruit along the stem of the last years wood so it is important to cut out old wood and let new wood take over. You would not want any wood older then three years old. With the pruning that I have carried out, I have found it useful to have another look over the brush after a coffee and chocolate break, fresh eyes, even better would be to have Thomas here to go over my work but he is back in Australia enjoying the sun, how I hate him. I do miss his help very much.
