Our Feedback

Very impressed with the cherry trees recieved in perfect condition.planted as per instructions.I would like advice, as now I have got them I am told I will never have cherries as the birds always get there first.As the trees max height is 8ft is there some way I can protect them and when is it the beast time to offer this protection. I would be grateful for your advice. Webmasters Reply: Here on the nursery we have found hanging old cd's in the tree the most effective method of control; these must be in place from approximately mid March until after the fruit has been harvested.

This was the first of the 'Ben's' bred by the Scottish Crop Research Institute - and in our opinion still remains the best!

This strong growing variety really thrives after a hard Winter, producing bumper crops - and flowering late, the blossom is rarely damaged even by late frosts.

Heavy crops of dark black currants are produced late July - early August.

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

  • Harvest from late July.
  • Self Fertile.
  • Good resistance to mildew.
  • In bush form 'Ben Lomond' is best planted 5 x 5 feet (1.5 x 1.5 metres) apart and kept at around 4 - 5 feet (1.2 - 1.5 metres) tall.
