Trees planted in recent seasons
1
1 × Apple Discovery (in 23-24)
Malus domestica 'Discovery'

Apple trees are often managed to maximise fruit production, so they usually remain relatively small. Their pink-tinged white blossom in spring can rival that of cherry, and the fruit ripens through the summer, often ripening in late September.

There are dozens of different varieties that might offer whiter blossom, earlier fruit, and apples to suit every palate.

2 × Great White Cherry (in 23-24)
Prunus 'Tai Haku'

The ornamental cherry with the largest flowers which are held in globular bunches. 'Tai Haku' is the variety famously 'rediscovered' by Captain Collingwood 'Cherry' Ingram in a garden on the Kent/Sussex border, having become unknown in Japan. It has been successfully reintroduced there, and is a frequent cherry tree of parks and gardens.

Bird Cherry is our Tree of the Month

One of the last cherries to flower is bird cherry, a tree native to the UK, although not the south east of England. Despite that, it thrives in urban areas all over the country including in London where it can be seen very frequently.

Unlike the flowering cherries that make such an impression earlier in the spring bird cherry flowers in May and also unlike thos ornamental trees, it holds its flowers in spikes. These white flower spikes point in all directions, appearing to cover the canopy with hundreds of ice creams!

Bird cherries are also distinguished from other Prunus species by their smooth grey bark which does not have the horizontal slits – or lenticels – which are so conspicuous on other species in this genus.
