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.

Collection - If you would like to collect your trees then use this option. Note the collection is from the Wholesale Nursery office between Monday-Friday only. Please allow 1 working days for your order to be processed prior to collection date.

We are not a Garden Centre or retail Nursery. Orders can be placed via our website and the collection option can be selected at the checkout. Your order will then be ready for you to collect during our normal opening hours which are Monday-Friday 07.30-16.30. Our plants are grown in fields that can be 2 miles away from our office so it is not possible to just turn up and select your own trees.

Delivery Charges - The delivery charge is worked out from the weight and the size of the plant. We have several rates that apply to UK mainland addresses. A delivery charge of £8.50 is for all single tree orders. £10.00 if more than one tree except in the case of the Espalier and Fan trained trees where this charge is a maximum of £40.00. Once you have put together your order the delivery charge will show before payment.

Cherry tree arrived in excellent condition....healthy, well branched with a very good graft union. Order process, packaging and courier delivery were all faultless. Have purchased a few plants through Blackmoor's and have been totally happy with my orders....highly recommended.

Very impressed, a fine little tree in superb condition. I shall grow on in a large tub and hope I can do it justice. I have used this company before and they never fail to please. Highly recommended.

Super impressed with Blackmoor nursery. I purchased a Mini Cherry Cinderella bare root in March 2016. However, for what ever reason mine did not grow very well. I contacted them on Tuesday and after sending over a couple of photos they agreed the tree was not looking good and advised a new tree would be ready for collection the next day. I am so pleased I purchased from them and even when things go wrong they are corrected extremely quickly - A big thank you.

This is now the 9th Fruit Tree I have purchased from Blackmoor over the past two years and have never been disappointed. This Cherry arrived this morning in as expected perfect condition and packed very well as usual. Great Company to deal with and they know how to grow Fruit Trees to perfection.

I come back to Blackmoors time and time again because the fruit stock is second to none; the customer service is excellent; the packaging is sturdy; despatch is swift ie a few days rather than weeks. Again, this Cinderella I have just received is one fine specimen. Thankyou so much everyone at Blackmoors. I love my tree!
