Berries and currants certainly earn their place in the grow-your-own garden. After the initial planting the only real attention needed is that some need pruning once a year or in the case of strawberries tidied up. Some need to be tied in to supports or covered with nets to deter predatory birds. They may need watering during very dry weather, (remember what that looks like do you?) and most benefit from a feed. If bushes are grown through weed control fabric with mulch on top very little weeding is needed, otherwise weeds can be kept down by hoeing. After that, pest and disease willing the most labour intensive task is at harvesting time and that is directly linked to how much fruit you grow which in our case is quite a lot!
