Please Note

These seeds should ideally be sown this season. All our packets have ‘Sow by Date’ guidance on them, this is the date the seeds should be sown in order to achieve the highest rate of germination. You will still see the same high-quality plants if sowing in seasons after the ‘Sow by Date’ but may see a reduction in germination rate

Description

  • Delicious dessert cherries
  • Perfect as patio trees
  • Comfortable picking height

Grow sweet cherry Van in your kitchen garden. Our trees grow perfectly in pots on sunny patios reaching a manageable 1.2m (4ft). It's a reliable sweet red dessert cherry for UK growers and a bowl of Van cherries makes a great addition to the summer dining table. The flesh is firm and the flesh, succulent.

Fruit is preceded by a wealth of flowers, bringing in important pollinating insects early in the year which stick around to pollinate pea, beans and other fruiting vegetables.

These trees have been grown and pruned to keep a compact shape, suitable for small spaces or grown in containers. Each winter, when the plant is dormant prune out any dead, diseased or damaged branches to a healthy bud. Cut back this seasons growth by 1/4 to an outward facing healthy bud. You can remove the tallest central branch, 'The Leader' to encourage side shoots and keep the height of the tree short

We recommend you prune lightly in August to create a good canopy shape. Remove any wayward branches fully that spoil the overall shape of the tree. Prune around a quarter of the fruit stems to a leafy-shoot further down the stem.

Cherry Van is not self-fertile; it will need companions in the 30-50m range to facilitate pollination in early Spring. Cherry Van is part of flowering Group 3, indicating the expected flowering time; it must be accompanied by other Group 3 cherries for pollination. You can also use varieties in groups 2 and 4, as these will be close in flowering times. There may be Cherry trees in the neighbourhood or to be sure, purchase another Cherry tree variety in this same group and plant in close proximity in the garden.

During summer delivery, our plants may exhibit signs of nature's hustle and bustle on their leaves. Since we have a high concentration of plants on the nursery, a variety of insects are drawn to them as a source of food and nutrition. We feel that this is all part of gardening and have to strike a balance between keeping the plants healthy for our customers and not interfering too much with natural lifecycles.

We try to use as many natural methods of control as possible and only intervene as a last resort. So you may see some leaves that are discoloured or with small areas where the insects have been eating them. Any high levels of damage or attack will have been dealt with prior to delivery and plants graded out as best as possible when selected for packing. No plants will be delivered with damage that will affect the future growth or success of harvest.
