View all Wild Cherry plants

Wild Cherry plants produce long-lasting flowers during Spring, which droop down in long clusters. The bright-green, oval leaves will provide a beautiful contrasting background to the blooms, and the glossy summer cherries add a gorgeous array of colour, too. By Autumn, this is all topped off with stunning, warmly coloured leaves.

Though wild cherries are more bitter than usual, they will always be snapped up quickly by the birds.

Please note: You must plant your bare root plant as soon as possible after delivery (within 2 days at most). The roots are tender and need to remain moist.

This 40/60cm bare root Wild Cherry plant has an average growth rate but will exceed 4m tall when planted in good conditions.

Though Wild Cherry plants are easiest to maintain at 4m (especially when looking for a hedge), they have an ultimate height of 12m.
  • Growth rate: Average (20-40cm per year)
  • Ideal height: 4m+ Tall
  • Soil type: Normal, chalk, clay
  • Exposure: Inland
  • Aspect: Full sun, semi-shade
  • Evergreen foliage? No

As soon as your bare root plant arrives, dunk it into a bucket of water for at least 2 hours. The roots must be wet when planted.

If planting as a hedge, we recommend keeping it looking natural by not clipping. It will not tolerate any vigorous pruning, either.

However, if wanting to give it a prune, do so after the fruiting season (during Winter is best, as the plant is dormant). It should only need a light prune, ideally only cutting back dead wood and branches.

Root Types Summary

  • Bare Root
    Bare Root

    Field grown, bare roots are young plants that are only planted when they are dormant, from autumn to spring. We lift bare root plants and despatch them during the season but they can be pre-ordered in summer. As they are cheaper to grow, they are one of our most affordable hedge planting options.

  • Pot Grown
    Pot Grown

    Pot grown plants can be planted year round and make a convenient option. They come in a wide range of sizes, from 10cm to 2.5m so they're suitable for the majority of planting requirements.

  • Root Ball
    Root Ball

    Also field grown, root ball plants are scooped out of the ground using machinery to keep their root system intact and wrapped in bio-degradable, hessian sacks. They are mature plants that provide dense coverage very early on, ideal for when you need a thick hedge quickly.

  • Instant Hedging
    Instant Hedging

    Grown in troughs or bags that measure 50cm-1 metre in length and carefully clipped during the growing season. Our instant hegding troughs create a dramatic, instant hedge effect.
