          Welcome to the forum! Your plants look great. I don't know anything about black currant plants @Cbrook85 as they are not common over here but I'm sure someonr here will have good advice to share :)

            Oops @Cbrook85 .. We all have little disasters here and there.. IF me I think I would re-pot your Blackcurrent into some fresh compost.. I would use John innes 2 with plenty of crocks in the bottom for now and shake as much of the old compost off as well and plant into 2..

            Then use John innnes 3 when you pot on next time.. Then keep moist not wet but do not let it dry out and they like a little shade preferably too and hopefully it will pick up... :spinning:

            Yes Toms often require watering twice a day at the moment :SUNsmile:

                  Hi @Cbrook85 nice going!

                  I was wondering, what are the flowers you have in the wooden planter? They are cool looking!

                        You should be very proud of yourself as all your plants look so healthy.
