Common Juniper

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

We offer 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

Common Juniper is a small coniferous shrub. This hardy evergreen is very commonly used by landscapers to provide texture and ground cover beneath larger trees or in beds around the foundations of buildings.

Common Juniper typically grows to 3 or 4 feet in height and will not spread like Creeping Juniper.
