Buyers Guide for Cherry Trees

Our cherry trees for sale are UK grown on the nursery using the cherry rootstock Colt and dwarf Gisela 5, they are suitable for gardens of all sizes. We pride our cherry trees on being the very best, and as the majority are E.M.L.A. virus tested, you can be sure that you are investing in a high-quality grow-your-own cherry tree which will supply you with delicious fruits for a very long time. Take your pick from the great variety  for sale at Chris Bowers, which includes the best new cultivars and older heirloom varieties from orchards of the past. 

The type of cherry tree you are buying will be dictated by the space and environment you have in which to plant. An orchard setting will benefit from larger, vigorously growing trees but in a garden setting dwarfing roottsocks are more popular and easily managed. The situation, too, will influence the variety, warmer sunny spot is demanded by the delicious sweet eating cherry, but a Morello cherry tree will thrive with some shade and a colder environment so can be a very useful addition. 

If you are only planting one tree make sure it is a self fertile cherry variety that can yield well on it's own; when planting groups of trees then you can make your selection from a wider choice. The newer modern varieties tend to be self pollinating wherease older heritage types normally need to be grown with a pollinator. Have a look at our range where the qualities of each are described.
