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.
