Cherry Trees

Every garden should have a cherry tree, for their irresistible fruit and beautiful blossom. They’re easy to care for and some varieties are even suitable for growing in pots on the patio. Choose bare root cherry trees for planting between November and March - they're transported while dormant without pots so we can pass on the savings to you! These strong healthy plants will settle in quickly over winter and shoot off in the spring. Read on for all you need to know about choosing, growing and caring for Cherry trees.

Choose your Cherry trees

Cherries can be harvested in early, mid or late summer, depending on the variety. For sweet eating cherries, choose Summer Sun, Stella or Lapins. For pies, jams and tarts, we recommend Morello, May Duke or Kordia (ideal for Black Forest Gateau!) If you only want one tree, choose a self fertile variety - partially self fertile trees (May Duke and Summer Sun) will benefit from a pollination partner and non self fertile trees (Kordia) will need one.

Where to grow your Cherry trees

Growing your Cherry tree in full sun will give you more blossom and fruit, but they will also tolerate partial shade. Plant in well-drained, slightly acidic soil against a sunny wall or fence and support with a stake. Dwarf varieties Stella and Hartland are perfect for growing in pots on the patio - choose a pot at least 45cm in diameter and position in a sunny spot.

Cherry Tree Care Tips

Cherry trees are ideally suited for the UK climate and need little care. They will benefit from an annual mulch and a potassium-rich feed in the growing season. Protect the delicate buds against late frosts with a horticultural fleece and prune annually to keep a neat shape. For more advice on planting, growing and supporting your Cherry trees, see our Full Care Guide.
