Ornamental cherries

Cherry blossom, blue sky, what could be better.

What surer sign of spring is there than ornamental cherries clothed in blossom. I feel really excited seeing the cherry blossom emerging in the spring, coupled with  a sense of sadness a month later when the blossom drifts to the ground ,like confetti at a wedding as the leaves emerge.

The cherries are easy to grow and come in all shapes,sizes and  colours. There’s a cherry for any size of garden, and as an added bonus  many of them give a  good display of autumn colour, before settling down for the winter, (there are even winter flowering ones )ready to dazzle us once again, with their blossom a few months later.

Every year we get asked what  are those upright, pink cherries (as per picture)growing in front the Garden Centre. These are a variety called Hillier Spire, off which we have some in stock.
