Snow Goose (Prunus 'Snow Goose') is a narrow, upright small tree of considerable merit. The lovely, large, soft, single, white flowers with long tassle stamens are beautiful in early April. Snow Goose is a real spectacle in autumn, producing attractive autumn colours.
A small height tree, so expect a height of up to 4 metres (13 foot) after 10 years.
Snow Goose is supplied at a height of between 1.25 and 2.4 metres in a 7-15 litre container for year round planting and better results than from either bare-root or rootballed stock. Message card included at no additional cost if required. Just add the information required on the card at checkout.

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 GardenAir 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.
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.
