How to multiply blackcurrant horizontal layers?
Blackcurrant well breeds in many ways. The simplest of them - horizontal layers. If in a garden there is a productive variety of currant, for one season it is possible to receive powerful saplings from a maternal bush.


In the early spring on a bush of currant choose young one-year escapes, shorten a top on some kidneys. It needs to be done to intensify growth of lateral kidneys. In the earth dig out superficial (10 – 15 cm) flutes, escapes bend down to the earth, stack in the prepared flutes. That escapes remained in the necessary situation, them pin to the earth wooden or metal flyers. Completely it is not necessary to cover a flute with earth, it is only possible to powder slightly. When from kidneys young escapes start growing, a flute powder with the fertile earth – compost, the earth mixed with peat, well rerotting manure (it to mix with the earth). In process of growth of escapes their two – three times during the summer hill. The earth constantly has to be supported in slightly damp state, then by fall at each escape well developed root system is formed.
In the fall the pinned escape is undermined, cut off from a maternal bush and divided into some parts. Thus some young saplings which at once replace to a constant place turn out.
