Description
Also known as the Myrobalan, the Cherry Plum is a common sight amongst autumn hedgerows as the golden yellow and deep red, miniature plums stand out against the dark green foliage. A deciduous small tree, Prunus ceraifera is an ideal wildlife hedging plant, white flowers completely smother it in early spring and then the edible fruits are perfect for jam making too! Height: 7.5m (24'). Spread: 3.5m (11'). Planting Distance: 30cm (12"). (4 plants per metre for a single line hedge).

How to Grow
Plant Cherry Plum in any moist, fertile, well-drained soil. Incorporate plenty of compost or well-rotted manure prior to planting. Ideally grown in full sun.

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.

More Info
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.
