Our Feedback

Dear Victoriana, Just to let you know that I have received my tree (yesterday) It was left outside on my patio. I did not hear the courier ring the bell, so you will have no signature. My sister in Wales received hers a few days earlier. When I unwrapped it I thought you had decorated it for me, with all the shredded pieces of paper! What a good idea. We are both very pleased with the quality and packaging. Also the large buds already on them. We will both definitely shop with you again. Thank you so much. Kind regards,
June Chadwick, Seaton, Devon

This was the first of the 'Ben's' bred by the Scottish Crop Research Institute - and in our opinion still remains the best!

This strong growing variety really thrives after a hard Winter, producing bumper crops - and flowering late, the blossom is rarely damaged even by late frosts.

Heavy crops of dark black currants are produced late July - early August.

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

  • Harvest from late July.
  • Self Fertile.
  • Good resistance to mildew.
  • In bush form 'Ben Lomond' is best planted 5 x 5 feet (1.5 x 1.5 metres) apart and kept at around 4 - 5 feet (1.2 - 1.5 metres) tall.
