Wild Cherry Plants

The Wild Cherry tree, Prunus avium, is a large, vigorous native tree with white flowers. It will grow on any soil with decent drainage.
Wild Cherry is not ideal for a clipped hedge, but it can be planted as a screening tree and pruned so that it branches low down.
It can be grown as a screening tree up to about 25 metres high.
The plants on this page are young saplings. You can also buy larger Wild Cherry trees here.

Wild Cherry saplings are only delivered bareroot, during winter (Nov-March).

Choosing a size:
When you are ordering a large quantity of Wild Cherry for a big planting project, we suggest that you buy the smaller, 60/80cms tall plants. They are cheaper than large plants, easier to handle and more likely to cope well with poor conditions.
Use the larger 150/175cms tall plants if you want a full grown tree quickly.
All of our young trees and shrubs are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

General description of Prunus avium plants:

Wild cherry trees are vigorous and wide spreading. Mature trees have a suckering tendency and, over time, a single tree can create a cloned thicket of itself over a large area. It looks lovely in spring, with simple, scented white flowers frothing out from the brown and green new leaves. The cherries are edible and a bit sweet, but the flavour isn't great unless you cook them with some sugar; best to leave them for the birds.
You can plant wild cherry as a clipped hedge, but we think that either Bird Cherry or Cherry Plum are better suited for this.

History & uses of Prunus avium:

Wild cherries are the ancestors of modern eating cherries. They may be true natives, but it is also possible that they were introduced to Europe and Britain by stone age humans. The timber is pretty strong and polishes very nicely when it is used for decorative work. It also burns well, even when it is fresh, and the smoke carries some of the flower's scent. Some local names for this tree include gean, crab cherry, hagberry and mazzard.


Bareroot planting is best done between October and April
