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 dwarfing rootstocks that is no longer the case. Cordons should be restricted to 1.8-2.4m (6-8ft) in height and can be spaced 90cm (3ft) apart. We offer a range of cherries that are suitable for smaller gardens throughout the UK. Choose a sunny, sheltered spot. To ensure rapid establishment, cordon cherry trees are supplied bare-rooted and will be approximately 1-1.2m (3-4ft) tall on despatch (including the roots). 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).
