Bird Cherry           £6.00

Prunus padus                   Sold out

A familiar native tree, the Bird Cherry is small to medium in size and so would fit well into many a wildlife garden

Easy to grow, even tolerating deep shade the long racemes of small white, almond scented flowers in May are followed by small 6-8mm dark cherry like fruit which though rather bitter, are used in eastern Europe for cooking and flavouring but either way the birds will make good use of them.  The leaves have also been used cooked and the flowers and bark have been used for tea.
