Mini Orchard "Stella Cherry"

Stella is a proven winner that will give a worthwhile crop from the year of planting onwards, but you can expect to pick over 10lbs of delicious fruit each season from the third year onwards.

Self fertile, a heavy and reliable cropper, and unlike many cherry varieties, it will thrive in more exposed locations. And because it will never grow to more than 7ft tall, it can be accommodated in any garden - you can even grow it in a pot on your patio or balcony.

Height: 2m over 5 years Spread -1.8m over 5 years
Sun Level:Sunny Dappled
Flower/Fruiting Time: Blossom in March/April and fruits in July
Hardiness: Fully Hardy below -5 degrees
Soil: PH Any Organic Suitability High
Feed: with blood fish and bone and keep well watered for best results

Bought from Garden Bargains March/April 2012
