Wild Cherry is a great option for creating a hedge that offers seasonal interest. In spring the hedge becomes full of white blossom, followed by lush green foliage and red cherries in summer. In autumn the leaves change to shades of red and yellow. The hedging is suitable for the perimeters of large gardens and smallholdings. Height: 12m (39'). Spread: 8m (26'). Planting Distance: 30cm (12").(4 plants per metre for a single line hedge).

Water regularly until fully established. Blackthorn require little aftercare. Simply remove any diseased, damaged or crossing shoots to maintain a healthy framework. Apply a mulch of well rotted manure or compost around the base of the plants in spring, taking care not to mound mulch up against the stems.

These plants are lifted from the nursery field when dormant, and sent to you in late autumn or spring for planting. They often look dead on arrival, but they are just resting in the dormant period and will establish quickly for a strong start in the garden come spring. Set out in prepared soil in holes wide enough and deep enough to lay out the roots. Tread down the planting soil to knock out air pockets. Water well to settle. Apply a mulch to protect roots from cold temperatures. If conditions prevent immediate planting, set roughly into loose soil or a pot of compost (‘heeling in’) to protect the roots. Set these at the same level as they were in the nursery field – you should see a soil line at the base of the stem. Stake trees, taller shrubs and roses to prevent root disturbance.
