I have a small garden and have been gifted a bare root Morello cherry tree. I'm not sure what to do with it and have done a web search I'm still confused about how to grow it, how big it is likely to get and how much influence I could have on how to control it so that it doesn't get too big - if this is possible.
I've looked on the net and they seem to get way too big for me to plant in my small garden.
Has anyone planted one from scratch in a small garden who could give me any advice. I don't understand the 'bush maiden' and 'standard' descriptions as described on the net.
As it was a gift I must find the most suitable way to plant it in a sensible place and I'm just not sure about it. If anyone has experience of these I would love any advice available.
Many thanks everyone.
