Plant Information

Top Tips

Best planted in autumn, from October to November choose a sheltered location (to protect the blossom when it emerges in the spring).

Care Guide

  • Dig a square hole as deep as the roots and approximately 1.5x as wide.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the planting hole to help the plant establish quicker.
  • Spread the roots gently and place into the planting hole.
  • Mix well rotted compost or manure with the soil taken from the hole and then use to backfill around the tree.
  • Keep well-watered until established.
  • Keep the area free of competing weeds and protect the tree with a rabbit guard if necessary to protect your young cherry tree.
  • Pruning your tree for the first few years will create a more balanced branch framework - prune after flowering and before the new shoot growth appears to create an open goblet shape - removing any twisted, damaged or dead branches.
