I bought a reduced price white currant from HBase the year before last and put it in a large pot about a year later. It still hasn't flowered! I've got black currant and red currant, so any suggestions or advice would be welcome to make up my set :)

If you haven't already done so, try adding some potassium (potash) this will increase acidity (currants like a slightly acid soil) and promote flowering.
