Pollination Partners for Summer Sun Cherries:
Summer Sun will make fruit all by itself.
It is in pollination group D, so it can pollinate almost all the cherry trees we grow: any tree in group C,D or E of the cherry tree pollinating table.
Our Summer Sun cherry trees are all grown on "Colt" rootstocks.
Maximum height 4 metres.
Growing Summer Sun Cherry Trees:
Rich soil is important - dig in plenty of good manure and compost before planting.
Soil drainage must be good.
The more sun your trees get the better your crops will be.
Cherry trees are targets for birds, so netting them is a good idea.
Only prune cherries in summer.
