Dwarf Cherry

    2 responses

noisymina1 starts with ...
My dwarf Cherry (one to two metres) is already two metres and heading for the sky, even after it has been pruned back. I chose a dwarf in the hope we might be able to net and reach the fruit - if there is any - but I'm baffled as to the height of this tree. It has only been in the ground a few months!

Make sure it is not shooting from belwo the rootstock and prune off all the newer long growth as it shoots(usually twice a year - spring and again in late summer) .I keep my cherry trees to 2 metres for netting...and they are not miniature cherries.

Thanks for that. Yes, any shoots below the graft are removed, as with all my trees.

I have already pruned back once, but was afraid to do it again. Will do it again late summer as you suggest.

Hopefully, some lower branches will sprout next spring.
