Cherry trees are the perfect addition for any UK garden. Their delicious heart-shaped fruits are ready for picking from late June to early September. The range of varieties we grow covers a lengthy season to suit all needs. We grow a combination of sweet and sour cherries on a range of rootstocks, including Gisela 5 for the smaller gardens, Colt and F.12.1 for bigger gardens or orchards.
Pruning is important after fruiting to encourage beautiful white blossoms in the spring and fruiting for the following year. The most popular garden cherry trees are self-fertile. If a variety is not self-fertile, then the best pollination partner is stated.
Cherries can be eaten straight from the tree, or baked into a lovely pie or cake, or even a lovely alcoholic beverage. Cherry pie and ice cream is a must!
