We provide a range of Prunus bare root plants, including Prunus avium, Prunus cerasifera, Prunus laurocerasus, Prunus padus & Prunus spinosa.

The Wild Cherry (Prunus avium) is one of the great glories of the woodland in spring, and makes an excellent specimen tree. Its distinctive spreading branches are laden with masses of bowl-shaped white flowers in April and May, and its autumn performance is no less spectacular when the leaves turn fiery red and orange.

The Cherry Plum (Prunus cerasifera) flowers slightly earlier than the Sloe, but with similar abundant white flowers covering the whole plant in mid-February. The flowers are followed by small edible fruits, which are green, ripening to yellow or red in late summer.

Laurel (Prunus laurocerasus) also known as Cherry Laurel, this is a very fast-growing evergreen shrub with large handsome leaves. It's often planted as a hedge, because its fast growth quickly gives a dense screen to ensure year-round privacy. It has spikes of very sweet smelling flowers in spring, and berries in autumn.

The Bird Cherry (Prunus padus) is native to Britain, and looks stunning in late spring when it is covered with masses of white fragrant blossom. An important tree for wildlife as well as for its ornamental value.

Blackthorn (Prunus spinosa) more familiar to many as the Sloe, from its large fruits ripening in late autumn. Important native deciduous shrub often seen growing wild in the countryside. A densely spiny suckering shrub, it makes one of the best stock-proof hedges and forms an essential part of wildlife hedges.
