Leaves curling on blackcurrant bush, help!

The bush was planted in the spring, has grown really quickly and had a handful of fruits this year. I moved it a few days ago because there wasn't much room between it and my gooseberry bushes. It was a hot day but was probably only out of the ground for about 20 minutes. The leaves towards the top and the top of the stems were droopy. I watered it well and then watered it well last night.

Today, a number of the leaves have started to curl and have gone quite crispy- like autumn leaves- but they're still the same colour. This plant was very healthy I don't even think it's even had any issues with pests since planting. Please tell me it will recover!

They're utterly bomb proof. It will recover. Cut off dead wood in the autumn.

We got about 15kg of the bloody things before ours failed. Dug it up, now. Need a blackcurrant break!

Lol, thank you. I'll keep my fingers crossed and cut it back in the Autumn and hope for 15kg next year 😂
