Prunus 'Amanogawa' (Amanogawa Cherry) - 9L Pot
Prunus 'Amanogawa' (Amanogawa Cherry) - 9L Pot

The Amanogawa Cherry is a gorgeous fastigiate tree that parades fragrant pale-pink double flowers. The young foliage of this deciduous tree holds a bronze colour, before turning green in summer. Come autumn, they fade to a mellow orange or sharp red, creating a medley of colours.

Due to the narrow and fastigiate nature of the Amanogawa Cherry, the tree is ideal for a small garden, or for row planting or spatial arrangement.

Q:Does Height Really Matter?

A: Not As Much As You Might Think...
One stand out specification that customers often use to judge the value of a tree is the height. So should height directly correlate with the price of a tree? No, not necessarily.
To an extent the height of a tree can give you a good indication of its maturity but you must not forget: To grow a productive, well shaped, healthy tree you must prune it back regularly, especially when young.
Our trees often grow up to 2m in the fields before we prune them back and package them ready to send out. This pruning encourages the tree to grow more, stronger branches and ensures there is a good balance between the root size and top growth. This ensures that your tree puts energy into establishing a healthy root base instead of supporting top growth, providing a better foundation for your tree in the future.
So, in summary: Dont let the extra 10/20cm you may find elsewhere sway you. You are likely to be paying extra for the delivery costs and, if you want a healthy tree in the long run, youre going to have to chop it off anyway!

Caring and Maintenance

Water young trees regularly until roots are well established. Trim annually from mid to late summer. Apply some fertiliser in spring in order to promote healthy growth. Optionally, mulch in spring. Check tree ties regularly and loosen any if necessary to avoid rubbing of the stems.

Planting

  • Planting Distance: 6m minimum

Suited to almost all well-drained and moderately fertile soils with pH between 4.5 and 7.5 in a sheltered, full sun or partial shade location.
Before planting your tree, clean up all wandering weeds and keep a clean ring around the tree base. Water well during the first year until well established.

Autumn is the best season for planting trees, as the soil moisture and heat allow easier and faster root establishment and regeneration of damaged root systems.

RHS Award of Garden Merit

The Award of Garden Merit or AGM is an award made to garden plants by the British Royal Horticultural Society after a period of assessment by the appropriate committees of the Society. Awards are made annually after plant trials (which may last for one or more years, depending on the type of plant being trialled) at RHS Garden, Wisley and other RHS gardens, or after observation of plants in specialist collections. This is intended to judge the plants' performance for conditions in the UK.

This is an example of our polypot - note the fruit/ornamental trees we stock will vary in appearance according to species and season.

"I am pleased with the tree but it is a stick at the moment and I am looking forward to seeing it in bloom as I bought it for the blossom. It is only 115 cm high but seems to have plenty of buds ready to burst. I followed the instructions carefully for planting and it appears to be growing already so time will tell whether it turns out to be an excellent specimen!"
