Blackcurrant
Creeping Juniper

Blackcurrant is a medium-sized shrub producing delicious, deep purple to black sweet berries suitable for jams, jellies, syrups and cordial.

Our Blackcurrant is grown from seed from the "Ben" series of Blackcurrant cultivars, developed by the Mylnefield Research Station in Scotland with a focus on cold hardiness and heavy commercial fruit production. Our seedlings will be slightly different due to hereditary differences but will be very similar to this series.

Creeping Juniper is a native coniferous shrub. This hardy evergreen is very commonly used by landscapers to provide texture and ground cover beneath larger trees.

Creeping Juniper typically stays under 18 inches in height and, while it will spread, the rate is very manageable.
