Cherries on the balcony or patio? That's possible with the columnar cherry tree ‘Sylvia‘. Its compact growth makes the ‘Sylvia‘ ideal for planting in a flowerpot. Of course, another possibility is to simply plant it out in the garden. The cherry tree is self-pollinating and its cherries are sweet and firm.We supply the cherry tree ‘Sylvia‘ as bare-root stock — just the bare branch and roots. The branch is freshly removed from the soil. This gives it additional strength, enabling it to branch out faster than it would in a nursery pot. Plants grown from bare-root stock also adapt to their new environment more easily. They grow better and they're more economical.The fruit tree blossoms in spring. That's when it reveals its lovely white-pink flowers. A crop will be ready to harvest from summer onwards in the second year after planting. Pruning is not necessary. The cherry tree grows in moisture-retaining soil that we keep nice and moist. It's best to give the tree extra water during dry spells. Sufficient light is needed to ensure good growth, which is why we plant the fruit tree in full or half sun.

Prepare a large planting hole in good nutritious soil and loosen the soil well. Plant your Cherry Tree 'Sylvia' root ball at the correct depth in the hole - the top of the root ball should be just slightly below ground level. Fill the hole and press firmly in. Water immediately after planting. Cherry Tree 'Sylvia' grows best in a sunny area.
Cherry Tree 'Sylvia' is easy to grow. Water it regularly and don't let the root ball dry out. We recommend some mixed organic fertiliser early in the year. Place a layer of compost around the tree. The cherries ripen in June and July, as they get dark in colour. To protect against the birds getting to the fruit first it is advisable to put a netting over the tree.
