I was watching HGTV the other day and Mark Cullen was planting a current bush in a container. Has anyone planted attempted this and how was their success?

Sue: yes it will o very good providing the pot is large enough to allow the plant to grow. Here we have various bushes like current in large 10gal pots and they do fine. The one thing you want to do though is keep an eye on soulable salt build up if you are fertilizing on a regular scheduale.

Thanks for the info.... do you wrap insulation around your pots in the winter?

Sue : Either that or dig them into the ground about half way up the pot but this will depend on how much frost you get. Here we only get about two weeks of real cold weather so this works for us.

I bought 2 current bushes that were very sad looking, one red and one black, as they were on sale very cheap! I put them in 2 very large terra cotta pots last night. Here's hoping that will enjoy a better quality of life. It does get very cold here for about a week or two in January. We do get lots of snow, so I hope that with a little help from me and of course Mother Nature they will survive the winter. Thanks for your help Arne.
