Growing Currants, Gooseberries and Elderberries in the Home Landscape

Thursday February 3rd

Currants, gooseberries, and elderberries are handsome plants that produce delicious fruit that can be hard to find in the market. They are easier to grow than many other kinds of fruit, are small enough to fit into even small yards, and bear fruit at an early age. This short class will cover how to choose, grow, harvest, and use currants (red, black, and white), gooseberries, and elderberries here in southeastern Michigan. We will discuss which varieties to grow, and where, how and when to plant, fertilize, prune, propagate, control pests, and care for these plants. Instructor: Dave Strayer
