Cherries are an expensive luxury in the shops so it makes perfect sense to grow your own. In the past cherries were renowned for their excessive vigour, making them inappropriate for small gardens but with the use of modern rootstocks that is no longer the case. Our cherry trees are grafted onto Colt semi-dwarfing rootstock, which will produce a tree of medium vigour that is easy to grow, easy to control and easy to pick. Bush cherry trees will grow 2.4-3.6m (8-12ft) in height and spread. We offer a range of cherries that are suitable for smaller gardens throughout the UK. Choose a sunny, sheltered spot. With the exception of Sibley's Patio Cherry and 'Garden Bing', trees are supplied bare-rooted and will be 1.2-1.5m (4-5ft) high on despatch. Trees are available from late November to late April.

 

Don't forget to include tree stakes and ties on your order. All young fruit trees require staking and for better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).
