There is some good info on propagating red currants here:


I've done currants in the fall...just taken cuttings and stuck them in
the ground, and they've rooted well.

Also, I'd like to use that spot for a Carmine Jewel cherry, but I'd like to save part of the plant if I could.  I will try to transplant it, but that's dicey with an old ailing plant.  I wondered if I might also try to cut off some twigs and root them, and how to do that.
