Description

Grafted very high up on a dwarfing rootstock to encourage a more compact growing habit, Cherry 'Regina' is superb for small gardens and patio containers. From July to August, this delicious dessert cherry produces firm, dark red fruits with excellent flavour. With white spring blossom and an abundance of summer fruit, this dwarf cherry tree makes a very decorative and productive plant for the patio. If grown in a large patio container, its growth will be restricted and it remain just 1.5m (59") tall.

  • Cherry rootstocks:
  • Gisella 5 - Dwarf reaching a mature height of up to 2m (6',6")
  • Gisella 6 - Semi vigorous reaching a mature height of up to 4m (13')
  • Colt - Semi vigorous reaching a mature height of 5m (16')

This variety is self-fertile and does not require a pollination partner.

Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 4 years.


Please note: Patio trees are derived from clonal selections for dwarfism which ensures a particularly compact growth habit of around 1m (39") in height.

How to Grow

Plant cherry trees in any well drained soil in a sheltered, sunny position. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole and drive the stake into the ground to support the tree. Staking after planting may result in damage to the root ball. Plant fruit trees at their original soil level and firm them into the ground. Fasten the tree to the stake using a tree tie, and water well.

When growing cherries on the patio, use a large 60cm (24") diameter container filled with a soil based compost such as John Innes No 3.

More Info

Fruit trees do not suffer weed competition well. Keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. In spring, while the ground is moist, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost around the base of the tree, taking care not to mound it up against the stem. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Feed and water cherry trees during particularly dry periods.

Care should be taken when pruning cherry trees to avoid winter pruning as this leaves cherry trees prone to silver leaf disease. In the first spring after planting, select 3 or 4 well spaced branches on a clear trunk of at least 75cm (29"), and shorten them by two thirds. Remove the central stem to just above the highest of the selected branches. Remove any laterals below the selected branches.

In the following spring, select 3 or 4 sub laterals on each branch and shorten these by half to create a balanced, open framework. In future years cherries will require only occasional pruning to remove damaged, badly placed or diseased wood. This should be carried out during the summer months. It is not necessary to thin the fruits on cherry trees.
