A hugely popular and beautiful tree associated with weddings because of its brilliant display of double, white flowers, Blushing Bride or Prunus Shogetsu is a beautiful, wide-spreading tree with large, double, pure white flowers that hang in clusters from the horizontal branches during May to create a spectacular show. Blushing Bride is well-suited to small gardens, with an expected final height of 4m after 10 years but could go on to grow more depending on local conditions. Direct lightening strikes and low flying Harry Potters may prevent our Blushing Bride tree reaching full height.
This is the perfect apology gift if ever you made a bride blush e.g. If you let it slip at the reception that you are a sex change surgeon and the bride was your best customer.
Blushing Bride is supplied at of height of between 1.5m to 2.5m and in a 7-20 litre container, which means that the tree can be planted any time of the year and with better results than either bare-root or rootballed trees.
Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.

Hello AlanI wanted to thank you for the advice regarding my new Prunus Blushing Bride tree. I’ve followed it and the tree is already looking better, I’ll send you an updated photo in the Spring. It's so good to know that someone is prepared to offer advice when a negative report is forthcoming and not just bin it. Thank you for your advice and attention to detail I really appreciate it. Best wishes, Pauline Pascoe. 0919

Ornamental Tree Roots In The Shade e.g. Behind A Fence
It is more important that that foliage (posh term for leaves) receives the sunlight than the roots. So if the canopy of your ornamental tree can sunbathe but the bottom of your tree thinks there has been a nuclear winter then that is ok. You might want to ensure you have good drainage as water and no sun is the start of algae and other such issues.
Early Autumn Leaf Fall
Heat stress, being potted, lack of water, being boxed up for a few days etc can cause early Autumn leaf fall. Once planted, normal service will resume next season.
Do I Need To Stake My Ornamental 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.
UK Grown Ornamental TreesClimate Change
All our trees are banned from overseas travel so that we can state they are all UK grown. We have removed Internet access from the nursery so they cannot book any flights.
Warm and wet conditions from Climate Change have increased aesthetic foliage issues such as Powdery Mildew, Shothole, Rust etc These are not terminal issues and will usually last a season. All trees are inspected before being sent out to ensure they are fundamentally healthy. 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.
Fruit On Ornamental Cherry Trees
If any fruits are formed, they will be small, inedible and barely noticeable.
Cheaper Ornamental Cherry Trees
There are cheaper cherry trees out there but you need to make sure that they are the same height and age, VAT and delivery is included in the display price, comes with a FREE TREE WARRANTY, certified virus free, UK grown and not cheaper EU imports used to better weather. A less expensive tree that dies is not cheaper.
If you get all that, let us know, we will try to price match.
