How to grow red currants with large berries

Red currant does not present excessive vagaries in the care. She puts up with any lands. Undoubtedly, the yields will be higher on fertile soils. If the soil was well seasoned during planting, then the bushes do not need fertilizer for 2 ... 3 years. And how to help plants that have long been growing in the garden?

Like any perennials, red currants need nitrogen in early spring. Nitrogen fertilizers (20 ... 25 g per shrub), but rather compost or humus, are applied in early spring as a shrub. It’s not too late to give such top dressings and even in the first half of summer in the form of infusions of herbs, extracts from bird dung (1:20), mullein (1:10). Just do not mix organics and mineral fertilizers. All dressings contribute to the near-stem circle of currant bushes.

Before flowering or immediately after it, spraying on the leaves with microelements is effective. Currant is very responsive to such foliar solutions and gives a noticeable yield increase by 20 ... 30%.The use of a mixture of boric acid, potassium permanganate, zinc sulfate, ammonium molybdate (1.5 ... 2 g per 10-liter bucket of water) significantly increases the size of the berries. You can use ready-made microfertilizers sold in garden centers.

In dry, prolonged weather, when pouring berries, bushes should be watered.After harvesting the plants must be maintained with phosphorus-potassium supplements. Superphosphate, potassium or ash - these macronutrients are needed to set fruit buds next year.
