Until quite recently there was no point in trying to grow a sweet cherry in an average sized garden. The introduction of colt rootstock in the late 70's enables trees to be maintained at 4 metres. 

Bare Root = Field grown trees that have been freshly lifted and supplied with no soil around the roots. Only available during the dormant period November-April
10 Litre = Container grown and can be planted all year round. The size refers to the number of litres of compost that the container holds.
1 Year Maiden = A one year old tree and the size depends on the variety but in general they will be 125cm in height and will have some side branches.
2 Year Bush = A two year old tree that has been pruned back in the first winter to form a bush shape. Generally trees will be 150-175cm in height with multiple side branches. 

 

situation

Plant trees or bushes in a sunny site with good air circulation and average to rich, well-drained soil. They prefer a soil pH of between 6.0 and 6.8 (slightly acidic).

Avoid low areas where frost and standing water can be a problem (especially for sweet types) or sites where cherries, peaches or plums have grown previously.

Most suburban situations provide good pollen due to the close proximity of other gardens. It is not always necessary to have pollinators if the bees and other pollinating insects are generous with their visits. If you have no other Cherry tree close by then select two varieties in the same group or the adjoining group ie group B and D will pollinate group C as will any others in group C. Some varieties are self fertile.

Looks like a very nice healthy tree. Look forward to some nice cherries in July. Nicely packed & delivered on time.

Excellent cherry on a dwarf stock lots of fruiting spurs ready to burst, being a small tree it should be easy to net so I get to taste the fruit before the birds! many thanks

8 Jan 15 | Heather Allen

All trees arrived with nice damp roots in a very short time after despatch. All were in very good condition. I was surprised that a 2 year old tree had no side shoots/branches, just very fat buds.

28 Sep 14 | Ron Hanson

I have decided to grow a variety of fruit trees. Judging on the quality of the Victoria Plum Tree and service, I received this week, I will be purchasing the rest with Blackmoor Nursery in future. Thank you.

24 Aug 14 | Adelle

I ordered 2 of these, expecting small bush, Well impressed they came in a huge box and were over a 1m each bush, settling in well, now how long before i get the cherries?

Bought In a previous year. Love so much I have bought another this year to add to my cherry collection.

21 Feb 14 | Dawn M

One of two cherries purchased this Feb. excellent as usual.

12 Feb 14 | J A DALTON

Purchased in October 2013, this stocky trunked dwarf was covered in a thick coat of leaves when delivered. After falling, the leaves have revealed a dense network of buds that will hopefully provide fruit this summer. A great quality specimen, expertly packaged and swiftly delivered.

See my comments under Pluot Purple Candy for overall impressions of all items in my order. For this, as space in our garden is a little limited, we will value having a sweet cherry which will not take up much room

I'd previously ordered a "dwarf" cherry from an online garden centre last year which said maximum height 1.5mtrs. 12 months later my "dwarf" cherry is almost 3 mtrs tall and way too big for the garden. This one is 2 years old and is about 3ft high so delighted with it and it now looks perfect in the garden. Service from blackmoor was excellent and delivery second to none - highly recommended

I wanted to grow a Cherry in my garden but only have a small space. This is perfect and I am so happy
