How to feed currants and gooseberries to make them sweet: the harvest will impress
Many of the berry bushes we grow in our summer cottages produce a rather sour harvest. However, the same currants and gooseberries can be made much sweeter if you feed the plants properly.
OBOZREVATEL tells you about a fertiliser that will make currants and gooseberries sweeter. And how to use it correctly. With this fertiliser, you won't have to add a lot of sugar to jam made from these berries.
Potassium gives the berries their sweet taste. It also helps the bushes bear fruit well and produce large, juicy fruits.
Potassium can be added to the soil with the help of manufactured mineral fertilisers. But a lot of this substance is also found in potato starch, which can be obtained from peelings, and in wood ash.
Water the currants and gooseberries with water infused with potato peelings or wood ash every two weeks. In this case, the plants will not suffer from potassium deficiency and will produce good fruit.
