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.

A fantastic crab apple variety in every way Scented white flowers are followed by rich red fruits that remain into the Winter; jams and jellies made with this variety taken on an intense rosé glow.

Extremely prolific and heavy yielding.

Plant one or two near your apple trees, especially non self fertile varieties, to ensure good fruit set.

  • Season of use October.
  • Self Fertile - but pollination by another apple will maximise yield.
  • Grown on MM106 rootstock for an ultimate (un-pruned) height of 12 - 15 feet (3.65 - 4.6 metres) but can easily be kept at a height of 6 - 8 feet (1.8 - 2.4 metres).

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

Available from approximately mid May 2014
