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.

Budd's Yellow Dogwood is a select cultivar of Yellow Twig Dogwood that reaches 5 ft tall and wide. It is adaptable and disease resistant which allows it to survive in difficult areas. The striking yellow twigs will add winter interest to your landscape and contrast nicely with Red Osier Dogwood. You can also try contrasting Budd's Yellow Dogwood with more textured trees such as evergreens.
