    You'll have to wait....and wait...for a long time  ;)
    At that size, they're little more than a cutting and will need a couple of years or so of potting on, before planting out and getting  to a reasonable size. 
    You'll need to pot them on this year with a decent, soil based medium and then just make sure they don't get dried out. They'll just grow at their own pace. Once they're filling a bigger pot, you can plant them out.  :)
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....



    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...

    They are bushy multi stemmed shrubs that will soon be covered in tiny pale pink flowers.
    Then the leaves will grow.
    Leaves will go deep red in the autumn.
    They do grow fairly large and very bushy so make sure you give them plenty of space.
    Once ground warms up plant asap.

    I'm getting used to waiting!  Thank you for your help :)

    That's a lovely plant @Silver surfer and I'm amazed by the size, I thought they were dwarf cherry trees - oops!!!  I'd better get mine out of its pot and find some space for it.

  • All types of flowering cherry are dwarves compared to this one :)

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
