     Some General Information on Cherries

Crop

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.

Pick

Most cherries are ready to pick over the months of June/July.

Pruning

Only prune during the summer months, July August and September.

Planting Location

Cherries thrive well in a sunny spot.

We supply cherry trees either as Maidens, Bushes, Half Standards or Fan trained.
