Bird Cherry Hedging Plants Description

Only the birds will eat the bitter cherries of this native deciduous hedging plant, who's Latin name is Greek for Wild Cherry (Prunus padus) - fancy the Latin being Greek - how strange is that!

Bird Cherry has small, almond scented flowers carried in spikes approx 5" long. Prunus padus does well in any well drained soil, even poor soil but is not suitable for coastal or exposed sites or full shade.

Further Information
Further Information

Planting distances are very much a matter of choice - for bare roots, 3 plants per metre is adequate, 5 is good, 7 in a double staggered row will give a dense hedge quicker. Generally, smaller plants should be planted at higher density. Cell grown should be planted at 4 per metre in a single row or ideally 6 per metre in a staggered row.

For more information on planting distances please see our planting density advice section.

Pruning Advice
Pruning Advice

Bird Cherry hedge trimming should be done twice a year in late Winter and early Spring.
