If you’re wondering what to plant in your small outdoor space – they why not consider a bush cherry tree? These are a great idea for those who have limited space for a larger tree, but still want the benefit of an attractive feature in their garden and also trees that provide plenty of fruit.
We have selected four cherry bush trees which perfectly fit the bill. Three are delicious dessert cherries and one a popular cooking variety.
Cherry bush tree details
The eventual height of a bush-trained tree will be between 2-3 metres from two to three years old. Our bushes’ central leaders are pruned to approximately 1.2m. From this point, side branches will grow eventually taking the shape of a ‘traditional tree’. A gorgeous addition to any small outdoor space.
The benefits of cherry trees
The beauty of including cherry trees in your space is that not only do you get to enjoy beautiful blossom in the spring, but also a stunning display of red, shiny fruit in the summer, which taste delicious too!
Our bush cherry trees are busy taking shape in our nurseries, but can be pre-ordered now ready for delivery in late spring or early summer. See the details of the four bush cherries currently available to order from us below – along with links to our on-line shop.
Unique trees from Grow
Don’t forget our fabulous trees are unique as they are hand grafted by us from heritage trees in the National Fruit Collections at Brogdale. Fruit trees don’t get more special than this!
