Mine are still flowering but they are loaded with flowers. My gooseberries have the biggest crop on they've ever had. Keeping my fingers crossed that the mildew doesn't strike again.

Mine are heavily laden but my black currants look rubbish in comparison. First time growing either so don't know if this is normal!

I noticed the white currants had grown this morning, how long does it take after the flowers have gone for the fruit to be ready to pick?

You'd better get cracking then, MMM. Redcurrants with everything - or break into homebrew? :lol:

Why are ladybirds so fond of redcurrant bushes?
