Moving the Currant Bushes at My Farm

Autumn chores continue around my Bedford, New York farm. If you’re thinking of moving any bushes or shrubs, late fall to early spring is the best time - when the plants are dormant.

Not long ago, my head gardener, Ryan McCallister, and I decided to make a few changes to the bed in front of my main greenhouse. The area was planted with a number currant bushes - black, white, pink and red. I wanted to move them to a different area and create another colorful and vibrant cutting garden in its place. This project took several days - the outdoor grounds crew worked hard to prepare the beds, rototill the soil and then carefully transplant each and every currant bush.

Here are some photos - enjoy.
