Prunus subhirtella ‘Autumnalis’

R Quinn asked 10 years ago
Ive bought a winter flowering cherry and hope to plant it along one side of the garden, beside a 5ft fence. Ive read different reports of how tall and wide it can grow. How far out from the fence should i plant it and can i prune it/remove some branches if they are extending out too far. My garden is narrow- about 15ft wide

Winter-flowering cherry, Prunus subhirtella ‘Autumnalis’ can be planted within one metre of a fence and will grow out to reach most of the way across the garden in 20 years or so.

Ensure that there will be good air movement to reduce the possibility of foliar diseases.
