Growing Calendar for Prunus Accolade-Tree
Delivery: Early November to Late April
Ornamental Flowering cherry
Flowering Cherry Accolade is a good choice for a small garden; it’s a small spreading ornamental tree with large, semi-double, pink flowers that open from darker buds and smother the tree with blossom in spring. In autumn the mid-green leaves turn bright orange before they fall.
Give this tree the sunniest spot in the garden to encourage the best blossom display.
This tree has been given the RHS Award of Garden Merit as an excellent garden tree.
Although flowering cherry trees are related to the edible cherries (they are all members of the prunus family) these ornamental cherry trees are grown for their spring blossom and good autumn colour. Many also have attractive satiny bark, so the trees remain interesting all through the year.
Unpack bare root trees immediately and plant as soon as possible after delivery.
Do not let the roots dry out!
If it is not possible to plant because soil is waterlogged or frozen keep the trees somewhere frost free and airy. Keep the roots just moist by storing them in damp compost or if outside conditions allow, heel the trees in to a patch of bare ground until you’re ready to plant them into their permanent positions.
Your bare root trees will be delivered at the right time for planting. Normally between autumn and early spring, depending on weather conditions.
All our ornamental trees are delivered with FULL PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS.
Prune Ornamental Cherries in summer to prevent the risk of silver leaf disease.
The tree came with buds which shortly after planting went into blossom. Great tree.
Shrubs offer visual interest all year round – whether in full leaf, full bloom or with bare stems set against the winter sky.
If you want to add height to your garden and increase the vertical interest consider planting a tree in your garden. There are trees particularly suited for gardens which don’t grow out of proportion to your property or develop too thick a canopy that blocks out sunlight.
