Winter Hardy
Edible
  • We are delighted to introduce this incredible NEW & EXCLUSIVE sweet fruited ‘BUSH’ cherry that represents the biggest cherry breeding breakthrough in decades!
  • The delicious fruits are super sweet and have an old fashioned mouth-watering aromatic flavour – each totally winter hardy bush will produce up to 5kg (approx. 12lb) of fruit per year once fully established.
  • Because it grows in a naturally dwarf BUSH habit and on its own roots, (rather than as a tall grafted tree) you can pick your heavy crop of tasty cherries from each branch, easily and from the safety ground level every summer ... from early July here in the UK
  • Supplied 60 – 70 cm tall in a 3 litre pot. Eventual height – 2 m (6ft).

Product Description

We were completely blown away by this, when we stumbled across this new concept of fruiting Cherry trees one drizzly winter's day in Northern Holland last year. It is revolutionising commercial Cherry cropping, and now we are excited to bring it to UK gardeners from summer 2017...

This is simply a completely new way to grow cherries, one which were it not for the persistence of an enthusiastic breeder may never have seen the light of day. It is simply the first bush cherry, as opposed to a tree, so forms a nice neat clump of many many fruiting branches right from the base - and as a result does not get too tall, and makes picking really easy - as well as netting from pesky birds.

It still has fabulous sweet flavour to rival market leading 'Stella', it yields well, and is 100% self-fertile, and has the iconic spring cherry blossom too - so makes the perfect garden cherry. If pruned hard each summer, it can be kept very compact, and can even produce big crops of fruit.

Be one of the first to see what all the excitement is about...

Plant Information

Top Tips

Pot-grown shrubs can be planted at any time of the year as long as the soil is not waterlogged or frozen. If in doubt, err towards spring but remember to keep pots well-watered so that the soil does not dry out.

Birds will quickly strip the ripening cherries from the tree - drape netting over cherry trees to protect the fruit from birds.

Care Guide

  • Best grown in moderately fertile soil in full sun. Also perfect in large pots on a patio - 30cm diameter or larger and keep well watered.
  • Shrub roots generally tend to spread out rather than down, so dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting, and mix some well rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill one the shrub is in place.
  • We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling)
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball
  • Water well
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc
  • Apply a slow-release fertiliser such as blood fish and bone in early spring, and mulch to retain moisture, about a month before flowering.
  • Established trees don't require radical pruning to keep them fruiting, just take off any diseased, dying and damaged branches, (the three Ds) in spring. Look at the overall shape and aim for an open structure of branches and remove any that cross over so they don't damage each other. Trim longer new shoots back mid-summer for better shaped trees.
  • Harvest crops as soon as they ripen. Avoid leaving windfalls or over-ripe fruit on the ground.
  • Don't forget the tree guards as rabbits can strip the bark overnight.

This was a lovely, healthy plant much taller than I expected. We were on holiday and it had to stand for two days in the porch but was still moist in the pot. It was a birthday gift for my rice and she loves it!

The reason for marking good , transport issues ,plants damage and water logged ,plants also to big for the transport cardboard box ,the top of the plants were bent over to fit the box and broke most of the branches, Fair to say garden bargains sorted out the issues and replaced the cherry bushes . Without any fuss, plants arrived in the next 5 days .
