March Monthly Inspiration

Even before the first magnolias burst into flower as the weather warms up there are some exciting new cherry trees in our 2020 catalogue which can make a welcome start to spring in a woodland garden.

Prunus ‘Kursar’ and Prunus ‘Shosar’ are small trees growing to about 10-15ft tall in around 15 years. In early March the bare branches are plastered in clusters of pink flowers from every twig. The long lasting flowers are able to resist early morning frosts and stand out as wonderful feature plants while the rest of the garden remains dormant early in March.
 

 

Prunus x incam ‘Okame’ has double pink flowers and makes a similar early impact as a small tree.

 

If you have not yet tried one of our new range of Matsumae cherries to follow on the cherry blossom season in late March or early April you certainly ought to. These new varieties of cherry were bred in Matsumae town in northern Japan where they are very used to much colder weather than we have seen in recent winters. They flower a little earlier than some of our best known street cherries such as Prunus ‘Kanzan’ or Prunus ‘Shirotae’ and are certainly trees which will become just as popular and widely grown.
 

We think that the best of the Matsumae cherries are Prunus ‘Pink Parasol’ (‘Matsumae-hanagasa’) and Prunus ‘Fragrant Cloud’ (‘Matsumae-shizuka’). The former has double pale pink flowers in profusion on long stems and the latter is highly scented with double white flowers. Both flower well at a young age as half standard trees.
    Why not introduce a cherry revolution into your garden this spring with these unusual new varieties which genuinely span and connect the spring cherry blossom season? You do not actually have to go on a cruise to Japan to see and grow wonderful cherries!
