Product Information

There’s nothing like the taste of home grown fruit, but if you’re short on space, deciding which tree to choose can be difficult. Not any longer, as we bring you the amazing ‘Queen Mary’ cherry.

Developed to have a naturally columnar habit and no branches, the ‘Queen Mary’ cherry has been bred, rather than pruned into its upright shape, so it will maintain its form without the need for special training or pruning. Stunning spring cherry blossom is followed in July by the fabulous large, dark red and aromatic fruit that's just begging to be eaten!

Self-fertile and reaching a height of just 2m in 5 years, harvesting the fruit of 'Queen Mary' couldn’t be easier as the cherries grow naturally close to the main stem instead of on branches. As well as being a productive fruit tree, it also makes a magnificent addition to your patio or balcony so that you can snack on the delicious cherries, fresh from the tree.

Supplied as a bare root tree, ready to plant, growing to 2m in 5 years.

Top Tips

  • Keep well-watered, and if growing in a pot, use a good quality, soil-based compost.

Care Information

  • On receipt, soak the roots in water for at least two hours (overnight is better). If you can't plant straight away, they should be fine for up to a week if left in a cool, dark, frost-free place - keep the bag around the roots with some water inside.
  • Dig a hole twice the width of the roots, forking over the bottom to loosen the soil, and add some good quality fertiliser such as Blood Fish & Bone (wash your hands afterwards!).
  • Aim to plant at the same depth as the soil mark on the trunk.
  • Holding the tree or plant upright in position with one hand, slowly backfill the hole with soil, and gently shake the plant, so the soil falls back around the roots.
  • Use your heel to compact the soil around the plant to ensure good contact around the roots.
    If you're planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast.
  • No special pruning is required, but If side branches form, remove them in winter.
