As a companion to Paul Lee Cannon’s articles on the genus Ribes, which were featured in the January 2012 and April 2012 issues of Pacific Horticulture, we offer the following list of nurseries that usually offer a good selection of the species and cultivars of wild currants and gooseberries mentioned in the articles. Be sure to contact any nursery before visiting to confirm that there will be any available.

Check also with your local botanical garden or native plant society, as various species and selections of Ribes are often available through seasonal plant sales hosted by these institutions and organizations.

Please be sure to mention Pacific Horticulture when contacting any of these vendors.
