Hugely depends on variety, though.

But they are generally easy and good fruiters, except for some which have fruit scarce.

By the way, anybody fancying a go, I have plenty saplings. :lol:

Yes, they do , but then what sort is it, BS, it might be a small one naturally and it's a thing you don't wanna prune if you can avoid.

They will fruit well, without bother and can get silver leaf through wounds easily.

Fans and wires are for your delicate fruit like peaches etc., this is going to produce in shade as well, well left alone.

Stop over complicating it, do you know what sort it is, what rootstock, where you got it from?

Semi- dwarfing root stock, if my memory serves me right, someone will correct me if not, expect a 4 metre sort of a tree in all directions. ( as a max for sour cherries on that stock).

Are you sure you do not want me free saplings instead? :wink:

You don't need to do much to them, just give them manure and the space they need, sorted. :D

It's a 3-5 m tree I've got, it's a natural hybrid, so thrives on neglect and is abundant  with fruit every other year, as long as you can keep the birds away, that's all you need to do, really.

And that 's as far as a small tree goes. Other than that you need to do very dwarfing stock, which will need feeding and watering excessively. :wink:

If that's the case, you can prune any tree, just take care with these ones, to do it late spring, summer time. :wink:

Where mine are from they plait and weawe them into decorative hedges, young growth is so pliable.
