I just wanted to thank you so much, firstly for dealing with my order so promptly (ordered Thursday, delivered the following Tuesday!!) and for sending me such beautiful, healthy willows. They are now in place and I look forward to my living hedge, screening my driveway from my neighbours. Thank you again for such fantastic service and I will be glad to recommend you to my friends.

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.
