Delivery Info

Prunus padus or Bird Cherry as it is commonly known, is a popular addition to a mixed native hedge. However Bird Cherry hedge plants are also great for a stand-alone hedge or when grown as a hedgerow tree. Prunus padus boasts racemes of almond scented flowers in spring, followed by black cherries in autumn. The bitter fruits are a favourite with birds who will strip them from the branches in no time!

They appear an excellent Co but sadly let down by their couriers who allowed rats into our plants which caused considerable destruction. I was very upset but without fuss or doubting us they fully replaced all damaged or lost plants. I appreciated their quick sorting this matter out.
