Bare Root Merton Glory Cherry Tree

The Bare Root Merton Glory Cherry provides large, heart shaped sweet cherries on a smaller compact tree making it ideal for smaller gardens. The fruits bruise easily so do not store as well as other cherry trees. Its resistance to canker gives it another great reason to buy. 

Although the Merton Glory is called a White Cherry, it actually is not.

Important information

Type of Cherry Tree  : Eating
Fruiting period           : July
Fertility                  : Not self-fertile so requires another cherry tree to product fruit.

Goodnestone Black, Nutberry Black, Merchant, Newstar, Mumford’s, Black Tartarian, Merpet, Lapins, Petit Noir, Black Oliver, Bullock’s Heart, Hertford, Celeste, Santina, Sandra Rose, Sonata, Sweetheart and Summer Sun 

Fruit Tree Heights
Taller does not mean more value for money. A 1 year old fruit tree can easily be substantially higher than a 2 year old, this is because they are hard pruned at 1 year old to create the desired shape. Some trees have over 100cm of height removed. They can then have another pruning at 2 years old to increase fruit growing real estate. Most fruit trees will benefit from having a third to half of the seasons new growth cut back in the Autumn to prevent long whippy branches which break easily. Age and pruning completed determine real value. 

Bare Root Cherry Tree Rootstock options explained 

Gisela 5 : Final height of 2.5 metres. Ideal for small gardens and easier for bird protection. 
Knip/Spindle bush : Commercial grade tree grown for high fruit yields. 
Colt : Semi-Dwarf Cherry Rootstock giving a final height of 3.5 metres.
Hexaploid Colt  : Very similar to Colt (3.5 metres) just a different rootstock.
F.12.1:     : Will grow to 4m + 
Bush : This means there are branches that start close to the bottom of the tree.
Patio : Suited for container growing on patio (others usually can be too, this one is just better for it)
Maiden : The tree is 1-2 years old. 
Half-Standard : Some lower branches have been pruned off to give a more rounded tree shape
Standard : More lower branches have been pruned off to give a much clearer trunk, more of a lollipop shape. 
Bare Root : No soil and no pot. Usually cheaper and will be 2-3 years old unless otherwise stated e.g. a maiden. 

Do I Need To Stake My Bare Root Tree?
9 out of 10 times the answer will be no, especially if under 200cm tall. However our article on Tree Staking should help guide you.  

All Our Trees Are Grown In The UK
As far as we know, none of our trees have sneaked off for holidays abroad and so are UK Grown.

Planting In The Corner Of A Garden
Air and light is reduced in this location which could promote fungus and bacterial issues. If the corner is of the house and a fence then you also have leeching issues to contend with from cement and wood preservatives. Also when it rains, that area would experience higher water levels so we advise against it unless the plant is very hardy. 

1 Year Maiden Bare Root Trees
If you plant a 1 Year maiden tree and do not prune it at all, it will grow a little more upright and have more clear stem.
