The Cherry 'Summer Sun' grafted onto Gisela rootstock represents a harmonious amalgamation of strength and flavor, embodying robustness and prolific productivity. The 'Summer Sun' variety is renowned for its ability to produce lusciously sweet and flavorful cherries, which are highly coveted. It displays a remarkable resilience, managing to thrive and yield abundantly even in areas with unpredictable weather conditions, making it a preferred choice for a range of climates.

Gisela rootstock is famed for its dwarfing characteristics, inducing early maturity and substantial yield in the grafted varieties, rendering it an ideal match for 'Summer Sun.' It contributes to the enhancement of disease resistance and overall vigor of the plant, ensuring a robust and healthy growth pattern. This rootstock is especially conducive to compact or smaller garden spaces due to its controlled growth habit, allowing for manageable tree sizes without compromising on fruit yield.

The combination of 'Summer Sun' and Gisela rootstock offers gardeners a rewarding experience by combining the enhanced resilience and adaptability of Gisela with the sumptuous fruit quality of 'Summer Sun.' This union promises not only a delightful visual appeal with its lush foliage and vibrant fruit but also a substantial and consistent harvest of delectable cherries, enchanting homeowners and fruit enthusiasts alike.

Gisela rootstock is renowned for cherry trees due to its dwarfing ability, promoting smaller, more manageable tree sizes. It encourages early fruit production, higher yields, and enhanced fruit quality. Suited to diverse soil types, Gisela is resistance-prone, reducing susceptibility to certain diseases, making it favorable for optimizing cherry cultivation.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
