Beautiful small tree

I wanted an attractive small tree for the back garden that didn't block out too much light. This was the perfect solution and the tree arrived in great condition. The planting instructions were clear. I had a few blossoms and the autumn leaf colour was lovely - coppery reds and yellows. I'm happy to say it's got through it's first winter and the buds are growing ready for spring. I've got a north facing garden that's quite sheltered.

I am buying an alemanchier lamarckii as a shrub and would like to know if it can be pruned to keep it under control and at what time of year?

These can be pruned either just after flowering, or in winter, and the best method is to thin the stems to create an open, vase shaped plant. If they become overcrowded and unruly, then you can cut them back hard to the ground, however I would not do this on a yearly basis.

Is Amelanchier likely to be eaten by deer?

concerned

I have heard that while these plants may occasionally be nibbled, they rarely get badly affected by deer.

Hello, Would an Amelanchier thrive in front of a north-facing wall? It gets some morning sunshine and had a large area of grass in front of the bed. Regards, Pamela Hodges

I suspect that this plant would survive in a northerly aspect, however it will be happier, flower better and develop richer autumn colour if it's grown in a sunnier spot.

Helen

I would love to buy this tree for my garden. I have researched it and found that it is compatible with sandy soil. Is this correct? or am I better off buying something else?

Hello, Ideally these plants prefer a rich, acidic soil that drains freely but does not dry out too quickly. A sandy soil would be fine, provided you dig in lots of composted organic matter, which will both help it to hold moisture as well as enrich it.

I HAVE TWO AMELANCHIER AND THEY ARE NOW IN THEIR FIFTH YEAR. THEY ARE A SINGLE STEM TREE AND ABOUT 7 METRES HIGH.WHY HAVE THEY NEVER HAD A BERRY

Hello, I suspect that if the trees are flowering well and are kept well fed and watered, then the birds are getting to the fruits before you even have a chance to see them.

Helen

My Amelanchier lamarckii I purchased last year has not flowered this spring. Is there any reason for this and will it flower in future years.

Lesley F

Hello, Many newly planted shrubs will not flower in their first year, as they concentrate their energies into producing root growth. This is no bad thing though, as a bigger root system ultimately means a happier, healthier plant. Given time and the right conditions however, there is no reason why your Amelanchier wont start to flower, so you may just need to be patient. I would say however that the right conditions include sufficient light, water (it has been very dry in most areas this spring) and nutrients.

Helen

Hi, I am looking for a hardy evergreen large shrub or small tree, preferably one that blossoms, for a small area of my front garden that is south facing and exposed to strong winds. Would the Amelanchier lamarckii be suitable? Also please could you advise regarding other options. Many thanks
