Eventual height & spread

My (in a large pot) Sorbus aff. cashmiriana flowered and berried last year ... but this year not a flower to be seen ... hence NO white/pink berries ... chosen specially to look good in winter in our courtyard. I have just bought a larger pot and propose replanting it in this with multi-purpose compost. Am I doing the right thing? I already have a profuse Joseph Rock in the open ground in the garden so do not want another here.

Hello there It could be that the tree had used up all the nutrients in the container so repotting it into a much larger container should help, but I would use a John Innes no 3 compost which is ideal for shrubs and trees. Hope this helps.

Do you sell these trained as standard trees with a strong leader, or more of a shrub with multiple branches please? Thanks

Hello there This tree in a 10lt pot will come as a small feathered tree, which can be trained as a standard as it grows by removing the side branches. Hope this helps

What can I use as a centrepiece in my bed? I'm looking for a small ornamental tree or shrub for a centrepiece, ideally with with flowers or pretty foliage. Can you give me any ideas??
