They self seed easily in the pond edge so I'd set them in very wet compost,

Mine were originally in a bag from Sainsbury's not from seed

looking for prunus!

This tree isn't in the RHS Plantfinder so I think we can assume it isn't available in the UK.

The same, or more or less the same, might be available with a different cultivar name. That's why I suggested asking at a large tree nursery, one where people know about tress, not a GC. 

Probably not a job for a TV presenter either.

If they're on the lawn, mow. They can't survive a season's mowing. I get assorted tree seeds germinate in grass but they don't last.


I generally pull them up from the garden as I don't hoe (I'd lose all my volunteers). Tree seedlings are easily to pull at this time if year.
