Although most folk might think Black Currant is a cultivated plant, it is in fact native and can be found wild in Britain, usually in fens and wet woods.

If you have a garden, then Black Currant is great for shady areas. Plus it’s a perennial so no need to toil every year to get your food, just plant, tend and share.
