Red Currants grew in our garden from the time of my childhood. My mother cooked them for jams, but I loved to simply pick them and eat them fresh.

I have a three year old currant bush that has yellowing leaves. It almost looks like the leaves are dropping off for Fall. Any idea what I can do? I have tried nitrogen fertilizer, but I'm not sure if it has helped much

Those branches with the yellow leaves probably have cane blight and need to be pruned.
