My Crandall currants did not spread by branches weeping over. Mine
spread via underground rhizomes. They were growing in black soil rich in
organic matter, pH 6.8, drip irrigation and mulched. After they were
established for a season they tried to spread 4' to 6' with a new plant
popping up and the rhizome continuing, not unlike Quack Grass. I gave them
a dose of Round Up.

I tried to cage (over sized tomato cages) them, but they just broke branches
leaning over the side of the cage.
Crandall is a super producer of fruit. Mine were in full sun.
