YouGarden Cherry ‘stella’ Tree 90-110Cm Tall In 5L Pot
If you only have space to grow one fruit tree, grow this one. ‘Stella’ cherry is self-fertile (which means it does not need a second variety of cherry trees to pollinate it) and is a really heavy, reliable cropper because it has good resistance to late frosts. Unlike most other sweet cherry varieties, it will thrive in slightly exposed locations but can also be grown in a pot on your patio. The sweetly flavoured, dark-ski ed, plump and juicy aromatic fruits will be ready to pick from mid to late July each year. From the third growing season onwards, you can expect upwards of 5kg (11lb) of sweet fruits per tree, which will save a small fortune compared to paying supermarket prices. Additionally, the beautiful cherry blossom, which appears from early March, will brighten your garden and mark the begi ing of spring. Specifications Availability: September to April Planting time: October to April Flowering time: April to May Fruiting time: July to August Supplied as an established tree 90-110cm tall in a 5L pot Top Tips Cover the cherry tree with nylon mesh or netting to prevent birds from stealing your crops – ‘Stella’ cherry trees are also known as the ‘bird cherry’ as they will steal most of your cherry crop if you do not stop them. Add Rootgrow Mycorrhizal Fungi to give your plants a head start and establish more quickly. Care Information Best grown in moderately fertile soil in full sun. If grown in pots, keep well-watered. Apply a low-nitrogen fertilizer such as 5-10-10 in early spring, about a month before flowering. Prune young cherry trees during winter dormancy to shape them into an open centre or central leader shape. Mature trees will just need a simple prune to remove dead or crossing branches or to open up the centre or maintain shape; unlike other fruit trees, ‘Stella’ cherry trees do not need pruning to keep them fruiting. Train fan-trained trees in spring. Prune established fans and carry out routine pruning on established cherry trees when harvesting the fruits in summer.
