    The deciduous tree is grown for its superb large, dark red acid cherries that are ideal for cooking. It has a compact but spreading habit, small white flowers in spring and bitter-sweet fruit August which are perfect for stewing. A popular, self-fertile cherry that can tolerate heavy soil.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly.
    Stone fruits like the cherry should be lightly pruned in the summer because they are prone to a disease called Silver Leaf which enters through cuts. If you prune in late summer, the sap is slowing but is still running fast enoughenough to seal up any wounds. Lighlty prune to retain shape and remove any damaged, diseased or broken branches.

      A:

      Hello there
      The cherry 'Morello', Gisela 5 11lt (bush) is a 2year old plant. It will be approx 5ft tall when delivered, and will be trained into a bush shape in the 2nd year.
      The Gisela 5 is a dwarf rootstock, which means it will grow to approx 3 x 3m (10x10ft), so it won't need much pruning, except a light prune at the end of the summer.
      Hope this helps
