As you can see from the pictures something is eating the leavesI can't see any insects but something must be there.I've also only got half a bowl of berries this year,not sure if whatever is eating the leaves is the reason ?I'm hoping to prevent this happening next year!
Probably the larvae of the blackcurrant sawfly - have a look underneath the leaves.
Thanks NanTheWiser,I will have a Google.I can't see any crawlies but I've just found a little white shell/cocoon on the bottom right of one of the leaves.
My blackcurrents have had a very low yield of fruit this year. Shame as I really enjoy homemade blackcurrent jam.Agree probably sawfly my gooseberry bush had its leaves stripped until only the veins were left.
