(SOLVED!) Are Damson Trees Self Fertile?

Sweet cherries (Prunus avium) are the only fruit species where pollination can be problematic. Sweet cherries exhibit considerable incompatibility between varieties, and even if two varieties bloom at the same time cross-pollination may not occur. Recent PCR testing has shown that the accuracy of previous research into these “incompatibility groups” is poor. Because of this uncertainty our pollination checker will only recommend varieties which flower at the same time and are universal pollinators. Universal pollinator varieties will pollinate all other cherry varieties which are in flower at the same time (with a few exceptions, for example Stella – a universal pollinator – will not pollinate Bing) 👍 [1]

Now mix in more organic matter to the soil and fill in the planting hole. Stake the tree with a rigid tree stake and two tree ties so that it is fully supported against the prevailing winds. Water in well, apply a granular general feed over the soil around the tree and add a 5cm (2in) deep mulch of well-rotted garden compost or bark chippings around the root area.You can also grow trees in large patio pots (minimum of 40-50cm/16-20in in diameter). Use John Innes No 3 Compost, as its weight will help with stability of the container. (last modified 39 days ago by Brittanie Crook from Cuernavaca, Mexico) [4]
