The beautiful sight of cherry blossom in the spring is reason alone to plant cherry trees in your garden, without the added benefit of the magnificent fruit. Early Rivers is a sweet fruiting cherry tree that produces large black heart-shaped cherries that are very tender, sweet and very juicy. ‘Early Rivers' should be ready for harvesting in late June, but we advise to only pick the cherries when they are fully ripe to enjoy the full rewards of their excellent flavour. Plant in a well-drained soil in a sunny spot where they will flourish. ‘Early Rivers' is fully hardy, but the blossoms will need protection from frost as any damage will impact on the fruit. Flowers magnificent white flowers from April to May. Two-year-old trees grafted onto dwarf Colt root stock supplied.

Order any two or more large fruit trees for only £12.99 each saving £2 per tree.

Pruning

Late Winter/Early Spring

Fruit trees are suitable for planting in most types of moderately fertile, well drained soil, although they do not like acid soil. If possible prepare the ground some time in advance of planting. Open out holes and plant with enough space to accommodate the roots without cramping them. Plant in a sunny location as they do not prosper too well in the shade. Make sure that you plant with a stake, as this will be needed for at least five years to help support the tree. Netting should be placed over the tree to ensure birds do not damage the trees.
Young trees must be watered thoroughly and sprinkle with fertilizer each spring. You can also mulch in April with rotted manure or compost around the base of the trunk. They should be planted in well sheltered locations. They will blossom and flower in Spring and fruit is normally ready to be picked throughout Autumn.
