Ornamental Cherry Trees

Looking for a Beautiful Tree for your Garden?

Cherry trees vary in their shape they can be more upright, rounded, spreading and weeping.  They are renowned for producing delightful displays with blossom that covers branches for a few glorious weeks before falling off like confetti, a true sign of spring.

Some varieties are perfect for smaller gardens such as Amanogawa as it has an upright habit and gets smothered in semi-double, pale pink blossom.

Prunus Tai Haku Great White Cherry

Regarded as one of the best pure white cherries, with clusters of flowers that emerge from pink buds.  It has a wide spreading habit to 6m x 5m.

Growing Conditions

For cherry trees to thrive, they need to be planted in full sun and can be grown in most soil types which are fertile and moist but well-drained, avoiding very wet or chalky soils. If possible choose a slightly sheltered spot so that strong winds can't strip a tree of its blossom.

The best time of year to plant trees is in the spring and autumn as the soil is warm and moist, once planted mulch with organic matter, such as well-rotted manure, it will help retain moisture and act as a weed suppressant.

The only pruning you need to do on ornamental cherry trees is to remove dead branches and the branches which cross over and potentially rub together which will reduce the risk of disease.

Mycorrhizal Fungi


One application of mycorrhizal fungi will benefit the plant for a lifetime, helping it to grow strong and healthy as it naturally increases the nutrient and water uptake which increases tolerance to drought and adverse soil conditions by attaching itself to the roots forming a secondary root systemIt is a completely natural and plant-friendly fungus suitable for use on flowering plants, trees, shrubs and edibles.
