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

The Prunus Shogetsu is a late flowering Japanese cherry. Its pink buds open in April and stay open throughout into May.

Prunus Shogetsu has been awarded the Award of Garden Merit given by the Royal Horticultural Society (RHS), which helps gardeners make informed choices about plants.

Caring and Maintenance

Propagate by budding or grafting, although softwood cuttings in early summer with bottom heat can be successful. Water young trees regularly until roots are well established. Trim annually from mid to late summer. Apply some fertilizer 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 Distance: 6m minimum

Suited to almost all well-drained and moderately fertile soils with pH between 4.5 and 7.8 in a sheltered, full sun 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.

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.
