Growing your own cherries

Another glorious summer fruit that is awaited with real anticipation, cherries are one of the sweetest and juiciest of all summer fruits and a real luxury. The season is short and the fruit is easily bruised in transit which also makes it an expensive pleasure. With modern advances made in rootstocks it is now relatively easy to grow your own cherries, and absolutely nothing beats the taste of a sun ripened cherry picked straight from the cherry tree!

Your own cherry tree was once restricted to only the largest of gardens as they grew to around forty feet high; pruning was impossible and bird protection non-existent. Now, with a suitable rootstock it is possible to grow a cherry tree in a relatively small space. Choose a self-fertile variety if space is limited, but if you can stretch to two trees, another pollinator nearby will enhance the yield. Leave at least 4.5m (15') between trees.

How to plant a cherry tree?

Cherries do best in deep free-draining soil that has had extra organic matter dug in. They won’t grow well in shallow, sandy or very very moist soil.

How to Grow a Cherry Tree

A fan trained cherry tree can be grown against a large fence or wall, and other varieties will even grow in a large container. The modern cultivars are also very high yielding. Fan and dwarf trees are much more convenient for protecting against frost and bird damage. Our Cherry trees are grown on a Colt rootstock, giving you a very productive cherry tree with a good fruit size, its compact growth is ideal fo growing in a small space, either free-standing or trained against a wall or fence.

How to Prune a Cherry Tree?

Pruning cherry trees can be limited to the removal of unwanted branches from time to time as necessary, especially those which cross or rub together. This should be carried out at blossom time. Cherry fruit bud formation in the young tree can be encouraged by the tying down of branches. Lower branches are tied down to an angle of 90 degrees to the trunk either to pegs in the ground or to the trunk itself, the reduction in sap flow and increase in stress causes the increase in fruit buds. Branches should be tied down in August of the first year and left in place until the following June.
