General description of Prunus Okame Cherry trees: Okame is a short, bushy specimen tree that tends to branch low down. It is very upright when it is young, becoming quite round with maturity. It flowers early, usually in March, after Accolade and before most other flowering cherries. It is covered in single, radiant pink blooms with purple-red centres before its leaves appear. In autumn, the leaves turn into a warm range of colours, from peachy yellow to flushed red.
History & uses of Prunus Okame Cherry Captain Collingwood Ingram, the great champion of ornamental cherry trees in Britain, bred this hybrid variety from Prunus campanulata and Prunus incisa. It has won both the Award of Garden Merit and an award for its cut flowers from the RHS.
Delivery: The basic delivery charge for orders of bareroot plants is £9.49 + vat, which increases to £12.55 + vat if you add any pot-grown plants, standard trees or fruit trees to the order. Because couriers sometimes experience delays, we schedule delivery by week, not by day. Therefore, please plan your planting day for the weekend at the end of the delivery week or for the week following delivery, at the earliest. You can choose the delivery week that suits you during checkout and we will email you the day before your plants are due to arrive.
Payment: We do not charge your card until we begin to prepare your order for packing.
Guarantee: If any plants die within a year, we will replace them. We only ask that you follow our planting & growing instructions and sent us clear photographs of the dead plants in situ, so we can help to make sure that the replacement plants succeed. You only pay for the delivery of the replacements.
Please note that our guarantee is void if there is a hosepipe ban in your area: your newly planted hedging must be watered in dry weather while it is establishing. The best way to water is very thoroughly every few days: at least once a week if there is no heavy rain.
Our nursery has been supplying container grown and bareroot hedging plants to gardeners, farmers and town planners since 1949. Our website started in 2003, so we do understand the concerns that you may have about buying hedging plants online. If any of your plants are damaged when they arrive or if you are otherwise not satisfied with your order after you inspect it, please repackage it and contact us. We will give you a refund or send replacements and send a courier to come and collect the unwanted plants.
