Barely visible blackcurrant cuttings in front of small bamboo sticks, forming a hedge

I’ve put in some optimistic blackcurrant cuttings to form a hedge along Oak Park in the #ForestGarden. Stupidly, I didn’t make any rooting compound (cut up some live willow twigs, soak in jam jar of water for 24 hours) but hopefully they’ll take.

Heavily mulched blackcurrant hardwood cuttings

Remainder of the blackcurrant cuttings, in the hardwood cuttings section in the Farside. I think the variety is Ben Moore, though I’m not sure…
