How to fertilize currants in November

After harvesting and preparing the soil for winter, owners should pay attention to fruit bushes to create favorable conditions for growth and development during the cold season. Proper fertilization in November will ensure juicy and large fruits next season.

OBOZ.UA has found effective tips to help you cope with this. Currant bushes need additional nutrients to strengthen the root system.

November is a good time to apply nutrients, because this way you will create reserves for the plant that it will need in the spring. Currants spend a lot of "energy" and "strength" on budding and forming new leaves, and additional fertilization will facilitate this process.

The fertilizer must contain potassium, phosphorus and other necessary substances for plant development. This will help to avoid diseases and pests.

Fertilizer

To make a proper and nutritious fertilizer, you will need compost, wood ash, and potassium sulfate.

Mix one bucket of compost or humus with one cup of wood ash and 1/2 cup of potassium sulfate. Also add a little water to make a liquid mixture. Mix everything thoroughly and spread it evenly around the roots, forming a circle about 20-30 centimeters from the stems.

Then you need to moisten the soil well so that the fertilizer penetrates the soil faster and the currants can receive nutrients.

This simple method will prepare the plant for winter and ensure a bountiful harvest next season.

Currant bushes also need to be properly cared for in the fall. First, you need to prune the bushes, because thick branches can significantly reduce the quality of the crop. First of all, you need to remove old, damaged and diseased branches.

Remove all fallen leaves and dried weeds, as they can become a comfortable breeding ground for pathogens and pests. It is important to continue watering currants in November. The water should be warm so as not to freeze the roots.
