Bird Cherries are a suitable tree for all but small gardens. A froth of fragrant white blossom loved by bees in late spring with black cherries adored by birds in summer. Dark green leaves turn a lovely yellow in autumn. A fairly shallow rooted tree, disliking deep cultivation around them. Avoid soils that are very dry or prone to waterlogging. Weed and mulch, preferably with organic matter.
To prevent silver leaf curl it should be pruned to clear any diseased or dead wood before mid-summer. Otherwise, if necessary, prune after leaves have fallen in winter. A rewarding tree and easy to grow. Suitable for medium and large gardens. Fully hardy, likes sun and can be grown in most soils.
