RHS Plants for Pollinators

Ribes 'Summer Pearls Black'

A compact variety, perfect for patio pots or balconies where space is limited. Glossy black fruits form on short clusters and produce a fragrant aroma. Sweet, and packed with Vitamin C, they are perfect for snacking, cooking or freezing. Early flowers are very attractive to pollinating insects.

Plant Care

Plant into any average garden soil, avoiding wet areas. Can be grown in patio containers. Prune any weak shoots to ground level in spring and feed with a good general fertiliser.

Planting Instructions

Water thoroughly, or stand pot in a container of water for half an hour before planting. Dig a hole twice the size of the root ball. Remove the pot, place the plant in the hole so that the root ball is level with the surrounding ground and refill, firming if necessary. Keep well watered in dry weather. Feed in spring with a good, general fertiliser.
