Compact Sweet Cheery Bush Athos 3L - a delicious addition to your outdoor space.

Please note: This product cannot be delivered to Northern Ireland.

Discover the biggest cherry breeding breakthrough in decades! Because it grows in a naturally dwarf bush habit and on its own roots, (rather than as a tall grafted tree) you can pick your heavy crop of tasty cherries from each branch, easily and from the safety ground level every summer, from early July here in the UK. The delicious fruits are super sweet and have an old fashioned mouth-watering aromatic flavour - each totally winter hardy bush will produce up to 5kg (approx. 12lb) of fruit per year once fully established.

Supplied 60 - 70 cm tall in a 3 litre pot. Height: 200cm Spread: 200cm. Plant: Mar-Sep. Flowers: Apr-May. Fruit: Jul-Aug.

  • Best grown in moderately fertile soil in full sun. Also perfect in large pots on a patio - 30cm diameter or larger and keep well watered.
  • Shrub roots generally tend to spread out rather than down, so dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting, and mix some well rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill once the shrub is in place.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
  • Apply a slow-release fertiliser such as blood fish and bone in early spring, and mulch to retain moisture, about a month before flowering.
  • Established trees don't require radical pruning to keep them fruiting, just take off any diseased, dying and damaged branches, in spring. Look at the overall shape and aim for an open structure of branches and remove any that cross over so they don't damage each other. Trim longer new shoots back mid-summer for better shaped trees.
  • Harvest crops as soon as they ripen. Avoid leaving windfalls or over-ripe fruit on the ground.

  • This brand new sweet cherry 'bush' represents the biggest breakthrough in cherry breeding in decades!
