    Another job that has just not happened so far this year. I have some old red/black currant bushes (probably 20 years) on which the new growth is poking through the top of the netting (at 6 foot high). I meant to prune them back hard to the ground back in November but did not get around to it. Is it too late to do something that drastic?

    Thanks

    By now your bushes are probably in flower; pruning will surely remove this years potential fruit? You may as well do the pruning as you pick that ripened fruit, in (?) july/august. Perhaps just prop the netting up for now.
