Disease on red currant bush?
A few of the branches of my red currant bush have little orange blobs. Although the bush is probably more than 12 years old, it is not something that I have noticed in previous years. Is this a disease that I need to worry about and, if so, what is the best way to get rid of this problem? I have thought about removing this bush to replace it with a black currant bush, so would this be a good time to remove the bush? If it is, how would I ensure that the problem does not get passed onto a new bush? Thank you in advance for your help, Stephen Hartley

This is a fungus called Coral Spot.
Treatment is removal of the diseased plant material.
