(Approx. girth: 6/8).
Trees should reach their mature height after about 10 or more years.
Leaves may not be present during winter, and we may prune some shoots to fit the delivery carton. Size may vary during the season and between batches.
The container (if supplied) is only used for transporting the tree, which should then be planted out in the garden or in a much larger patio planter (not all species are suitable for patio planting).
How to grow
The species Prunus campanulata generally prefers a climate which is slightly warmer than we have in the UK. However Felix Jury is one of the hardiest forms of this species and suitable for most areas - but plant in a sheltered spot for best results.
