'Red Lake' produces brilliantly eye-catching red fruit that is surrounded by bushy, deciduous foliage. A popular variety, this sweet fruit can be eaten fresh or is a perfect choice when making desserts or to be used within culinary dishes such as red current jelly. Easy to grow, it is an ideal shrub for amateur and professional gardeners alike, it is an excellent plant for encouraging pollinators such as butterflies and bees into the garden. 'Red Lake' is a self-fertile shrub where it will be able to generate the fruit by itself and can be grown within the garden or within patio containers for gardens with less space. The fruit will produce a heavy crop and be available for harvesting during April and May, returning year on year. We recommend planting in sunny or partially shaded areas of the garden within a sheltered location where they will thrive. Two-year-old, three shoots+ plants supplied.
