Ask a Question
  • Is Morello a good pollinizer for Montmorency? I have a Montmorency in my yard already. If not Morello, what do you suggest?

    Neither tree should need cross pollination, but they should be fine with each other.

  • Would a mini dwarf of this variety do well in a pot?

    A large enough container yes. A half wine barrel is 27 gallons.

  • There are two conflicting grow heights listed here for the dwarf montmorency cherry. One says 12' and the other says 5'. Can you clarify how large this will grow?

    The tree is 4'-5' when shipped and will grow to 12'-14' feet at maturity.

  • What is the best time of the year to plant Cherry trees in Seattle?

    Springtime between February and the end of April.

Montmorency dwarf Cherry

The tree arrived in excellent condition. Packaging was great. Got it into the ground and it has been looking very healthy ever since. I am very happy with the service.

Love my tree

I received my tree several days. Put in the as directed and it already has new shoots. Love my tree. I’m also including pictures of my red dragon and burgundy leaf filberts I got several years ago.

We ordered the mini dwarf 3 to 4 feet. Our trunk is at least an inch if not more. Thicker than a pencil. Hardier and bigger than I expected. She’s in the ground and we are eager to see her first blooms! She’s pruned very well and has lots of healthy buds.
