Hi all, it seems pruning from Nov to early Feb is the guide from the RHS due to the bleeding, last year we saw a garden with 5 different varieties on a gentle twisting sloping  grass and rock garden difficult to explain but it was sort of dreamy and peaceful, lit up at night with lanterns it was just perfection, they seem to be in a class of there own just stunning,

morello cherry tree

Cherry Tree Morello 

RHS Award of Garden Merit.

Morello is the best sour cherry for growing in the UK.It will happily grow on a north wall or fence and still bear fruit. Crisp white Spring blossom is followed in August by the ripening of dark red ,acid cherries that are produced in abundance.

The cherries produced are a culinary gem, superb in jams ,preserves,pies ,sauces and alcoholic beverages.Morellos can be eaten fresh when really ripe but they do have a very sharp-sweet edge.

Although partially self fertile an additional pollinator will enhance the crops.
