Cherry 'Sylvia' is a compact variety producing delicious sweet cherries. This dwarf cherry tree is perfect for the patio where it makes a great focal point in spring as pale pink cherry blossom cloaks the branches.

Grafted onto a dwarfing rootstock, to produce a compact, productive cherry tree with good sized fruits that is well suited to growing in small spaces and 60cm (2') diameter containers, or trained against a wall. 'Sylvia' is self-fertile and therefore does not require a pollination companion. Height and spread if not containerised: 2.5m (8') Rootstock: Gisella 6.

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.
Plant patio fruit trees in 60cm (2’) diameter containers using a good quality compost such as John innes No.3. Alternatively plant them in any well drained soil in a sheltered sunny position. Plant fruit trees at their original soil level, firm them into the ground and water well.
