At the last Leabank Square Gardening Club day - Nawal couldn't make it - but enclosed in her reply to the last gardening consultation - she made a very generous donation which turned into a scrumptious Stella Cherry Tree.
Stella's are very special & exceptional self-fertile, sweet cherry with large dark red or black fruit. White flowers appear in mid-spring, followed by delicious, juicy cherries which are ready for picking in late July. It is a vigorous grower, starting with an upright habit, spreading as it matures. An early and prolific cropper that also makes a good pollinator for other cherries.
Nawal & Mohamed - thanks a million for your very generous donation - we will think of you both while we snack on your cherries. We've planted it in the greens middle planter on the north side - so keep an eye on it everyone. Oh - and feel free to water to it anytime. Cherries need loads of water - and this planter is well drained - so you cannot give it too much water.
