Hi, have been trying to find the name of the cherry, I think its a cherry tree, definitely a prunus with the beautiful reddish bark. If anyone can help me with a name that would be great. Thank you

The Prunes Serrula (Tibetan cherry) has such beautiful glossy red-brown bark Performs best in a sunny position with a degree of shelter. Will grow up to a height of about 26ft (8m). Pruning should be limited to removal of dead or diseased wood which should be carried out in mid-summer.

P. maackii is another stunner with glossy golden bark with a pattern of horizontal lenticels.

Last email should read 'Prunus Serrula' rather than 'Prunes Serrula. My computer is not a gardener and annoyingly changes what I've written to what it thinks it should say. It's normally wrong and makes me look an idiot in the process!
