COMPACT SWEET CHERRY BUSH ATHOS 3LThis brand new 'bush cherry' cherry represents 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 - no ‘Cherry Pickers’ required! 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. Athos is perfect for any garden and is even suitable to grow in a large pot so is ideal for growing on the patio or terrace or in smaller borders - it could even be grown as the ultimate productive hedge. Supplied 60 – 70 cm tall in a 3 litre pot. Height: 200cm Spread: 200cm. Plant: Mar-Sep. Flowers: Apr-May. Fruit: Jul-Aug.
