For planting red currants suitable site with low groundwater levels – powerful root system of plants allows you to do this. This shrub can easily tolerate drought, but it is undesirable for a long period of stagnation vernal water or moisture after the summer rains, and the presence of cold winds. Therefore, it is possible to plant a red currant on all gentle slopes and flat areas, with the exception of the lowlands, and also for her to choose open Sunny areas, protected from the North winds. Planting red currant in the shade will be deprived of a green thumb most of the harvest.
