This is for a pack of fantastic quality Cherry Plum Plants (Prunus Avium)
Wild Cherry is a fast growing plant and can be used to grow free standing trees or can be mixed in to a native hedgerow where the fast growing plants will quickly provide some bulk.
They are very important to wildlife as they produce a crop of wild cherries which inedible to humans but the birds love them. They also produce masses of white flowers early in the spring, in the autumn the leaves turn red and yellow so they are a very good choice for inclusion in a mixed hedge.
The plants do not require particularly good soil and will quickly mix to make a dense hedge which is easy to maintain from 3ft upwards. Each plant will grow approximately 25cm each year given average conditions and can be planted in full or partial shade.
Like all bare root plants, Wild Cherry can only be supplied during the dormant planting season which runs from the end of October to the end of March but may be ordered at any time of year to ensure your supply as we may run short of some plants if demand outstrips supply.
Customers in rural areas may wish to protect their plants from rabbits. Please see our section on rabbit guards.
We highly recommend planting with Rootgrow Mycorrhizal gel to ensure that your plants have the best start in life. Rootgrow helps establish a good root system so that your plants are able to absorb all the water and nutrients they need.
We will send you our FREE guide to hedge planting with your order confirmation or this can also be downloaded from our home page.
How to plant:
We recommend that you plant in a single or staggered row at the rate of 5 per metre so just order the number of packs you need for the hedge length you are after!
Many apologies but due to a change in plant health law following Brexit, we are currently unable to ship to Northern Ireland. We are working on this and hope to find a solution soon!
