Since early April, I've had a black currant in a giant pot on my balcony. It's always been the 'strongest' of my balcony plants - it shoots p 4-5cm per week, has been dark green and looked really healthy, etc. The last few days I noticed the leaves starting to turn yellow. Today, a few of them have red spots. Most of the leaves have 'turned down', too, so instead of looking super healthy and vibrant, it looks a bit sickly. The drainage is ok. The soil's the same as it's been (neither too wet nor dry). It rains a bit each day, so I mostly let nature water it, but the last week it's been above 25C in the early morning, so I started watering it a bit in the early morning and evening to compensate for that.


If anyone has advice, even on googling terms, I'd love it. Thanks!

What does rootbound mean? (Not enough space?)

exactly. if i remember right currants are really a bush, right? they might want to be getting deeper roots or something. (i obviously have no idea what the hell im talking about, since just now i saw you said giant pot.)

np - i'm happy for any discussion. afaik, i've already got the largest pot you can buy. well, the largest pot the local garden centres carry. i'm not sure i can find bigger. but yeah, it's definitely a bush.
