    We are asked this question often. Annual currant branches are shoots that have grown over the summer (straight twigs of various lengths without side branches). Choose 4 powerful (the longest and thickest), the rest we delete. Two-year-olds are formed next summer. The shoot releases lateral branches and grows in length and thickness. These twigs are left as is or we remove the gain that prevents other branches or thickens the bush. Older branches. On the place of the boundary of one-year and two-year-old wood, thickenings along the circumference of the branch are visible. The older it is - so the length of a year's growth is smaller and higher the probability of damage to the glass. As a result, the crust darkens and fades, which is noticeable already in the fall. Therefore, the damaged branches are first cut out and burned.

    Sometimes gardeners are surprised why the currant after a few years of abundant fruiting wilds; The yields are lower, the berries are smaller. The reason - in the wrong agricultural techniques.
    The currant must be regularly cut and shaped. If you do not do this, the bush becomes thick, the leaves are poorly lit. And this directly affects the decrease in yield, the size and quality of the berries. The same picture is obtained when planting a currant in the shade of trees or buildings.
    Share our experience; in autumn (or in the spring before the beginning of vegetation), the bush is examined and, first of all, we cut out sick branches. Then we remove the old ones (the age is more than 4-x
    years), and also superfluous which thicken a bush and stir other branches. The pruning formula: we leave on the bush 12 branches - 4 annual, 4 two-year old, 4 three-year old.
    By the way, there is an opinion that three-year branches must be cut out. We in practice became convinced: their yields (of course, if they are healthy) are not lower than those of the biennial ones, so we leave them. However, we approach differently, depending on the variety: for example, in the late Perun variety on three-year-old branches, fruiting is markedly reduced. What is the use of leaving them? But the variety Dachnitsa even four-year-olds are pleased with the harvest.

    After you have harvested the currant, you can cut the bushes. From the systematic pruning directly depends abundant and, more importantly, regular fruiting. Pruning causes the growth of new and strong root shoots, which are also called shoots of renewal. By pruning can begin within 5-6 years after planting, as in the first 3-4 years in actively growing shrub land mass. The pruning trim should remain 4-5 good, healthy, strong branches (their age is from 1 to 4 pet).
