wooden fence for raspberry, red currant and blackcurrant bushes


wooden fence for raspberry, red currant and blackcurrant bushes

my husband made these wooden fences last year to give more support to our raspberry, red and blackcurrant bushes

I have to say that I've heard of disadvantages of this system. The birds see the red fruits much better and will pick them more easily. But I think that the advantages are as important: the fruits gets more sunlight and can be picked more easily, and the bushes are more contained to one area, don't take up so much space.

Well, we're planning to make some sparkling wine with the flowers of elderberries. We've never done this before, whereas my husband used to make wine and beer (mostly English beers), but that's been a long time ago now... I'll keep you posted if it turnes out to be any good! Hik hí ík ... ;-)

No it is a 'juice' which you dilute with water and serve with ice & lemon !! Very tasty.
