Hi. having gone through many sites on the web and not finding one that can help i decided to ask the orgers:D.....So can anyone tell me whether i can grow a cherry tree from seed.I kept a seed from a morello cherry and was wondering if it is posssible to grow this.I have already got apple, pear, orange, from seed, but all the sites i have been onis for buying or planting established trees at 1.25m high....Any help with this would be great as i love the idea that we could have a lovely cherry tree at the bottom of the garden.. Thanks in advance....;)

Try this one

I thought it might be like apples where better trees were available if you boguth them from nurseries where they are grafted on to root stock but it seems not for cherry or at least no mention on this site. There is a paragraph on propagation that should help.

Hi! I just joined this board (first post). I actually live down in Ross-Shire, but I love Caithness and have family there who I visit quite often (and I'm learning to surf!). Anyway, I have some year-old wild cherry seedlings that I grew from seeds I collected in England last year (gorgeous tasting cherrys!). I'm not sure how well they'd do up in Caithness, but I have far too many, so if you'd like a couple you're welcome to them!

Many years ago i was sitting next to our pond eating Cherry's and a pip dropped into the water. The following year i saw a cherry tree growing up from the water, pulled it out , potted it up till it was about 2 ft high then planted it in the garden. I have since moved from that house but i can see when driving past a 8ft at least tree, so yes you can grow cherry trees from pips and quite easy. janx
P.S don't know if it fruits though !!

are there many cherry tree growers up here, I see them in homebase and need something to fill the garden up a bit. I wasn't sure if they are self pollinating or if you needed several nearby for pollination.

Oh, sorry! I just noticed this. I'm probably too late for that offer now, am I?
I haven't forgotten about your trees though Justine, I just haven't been able to make it up north just yet. I'm still planning on coming up for a couple of days, I'm just not sure when!
