Cherries are either white or red fleshed. They also provide beautiful ornamental value with stunning blossom in spring.
To perform well and produce good crops, cherries like a cold winter and well-drained soils.
The best time to plant cherries is during winter. Like most fruit trees they like a feed in spring and autumn. Some varieties require pollination from another cherry variety to set fruit, but self-fertile varieties such as ‘Lapins’ and ‘Starkrimson’ can stand alone.
