A General Information sheet on Cherries
Some General Information on Cherries
Bare root trees should be planted in the bare root season. This is usually November to
March but it does depend on the climate. In some seasons trees have not been lifted
from the nursery until late December, thus shortening the bare root season.
However potted trees can be planted all year round with the exception of July and
August when the weather could be too hot. In this case they can be left in pots, well
watered until the weather cools down a little.
Most cherries are ready to pick over the months of June/July.
Only prune during the summer months, July August and September.
Cherries thrive well in a sunny spot.
We supply cherry trees either as Maidens, Bushes, Half Standards or Fan trained.
Protect the cherries from birds when they start to ripen . A good product to help
is “CherryAid”. See the information on the product CherryAid
