The Highlights

    • Long lasting display of blossom, from April - June
    • Makes a fantastic focal point to any garden
    • Double white blossom in spring, fading to pale pink as they age
    • Bronze foliage turning dark green in spring and fading to shades of orange and red in autumn
    • Small sized cherry tree growing to 4x4m
    • Hardy tree thriving in all but chalky soils
    • Our potted trees are supplied in EcoPots™. Eco pots use 70% less plastic and are fully recyclable, unlike normal single use pots. They flex and so produce less root spiralling and travel better in the post.MORE
    • Our trees are usually between 18 and 36 months old at the time of dispatch.
    • Our trees are professionally pruned before dispatching. This formative pruning can involve cutting the main leader, if the expert tree growers decide this will produce a better shaped tree. This can stop the tree becoming "leggy", and promote stronger, bushier growth.MORE

Know Your Plant

Supplied as:

Bare Root
Our trees are supplied as “bare roots” meaning that the roots of the trees are established below the ground but not actively growing (dormant) between November and March. As bare roots are stored without any soil or pot, they would easily settle themselves when in contact with soil in your garden. Don't panic if your tree is not shwoing any sign of growth above the ground comes April, as it's still in the dormant phase.

This tree is supplied in a 9L Eco Pot, which is approx D15 x H30cm. Eco Pots use 70% less plastic then traditional pots and can be recycled easily. A 9L pot allows ample space for good root development and can support a good size tree.
