Sorbus Cashmiriana — 20 Comments

  1. I have just planted a young sorbus cashmiriani in our very sandy stony soil and staked it. I followed all instructions . I am watering it well. How l far are the roots likely to reach? Are they likely to damage any drains etc?
    It has a reasonable space all round it about 6ft on average on all sides.

  2. Sheena, for what you need it for, I would go for vilmorinii. Its fine to plant a tree as young as the ones you suggest. You will not see such a great difference in one year but it may well grow quicker than you may expect.

  3. i live on the west coast of scotland on a sheltered bay. i want to p;ant a tree on a grassy piece of land next to my cottage and wonder which Sorbus you would suggest.
    My preferences are fast growing but not too big . A fairly spreading habit and because of proximity to the sea – fairly hardy. Rowans grow around here .i love the vilmorinii. the pink pagoda and the cashmiriana. Also most of the trees at our garden centre are about 10 12cm girth. Should i tryy to find somewhere that does semi- mature trees or will that size give me a reasonable little tree by next year
    Thank you very much

  4. Cashmiriana is not too fussy about soil condition other than it should be free draining and not get boggy. Some years trees which produce berries for whatever reason may not do quite so well only to thrive in consecutive years.

  5. What soil conditions do they require. Our cashmiriana did not do too well last year. The soil is very damp at times. Could this be the cause?

  6. Camilla, I suspect the Cashmiriana would be happy in Stockholm. The brightness of the houses come from the silver grey granite which Aberdeen is famous for.

  7. I searched for Sorbus Cashmiriana and came to your site. What a great one! I’m from Stockholm in Sweden and I am looking for a small, beautiful tree. Maybe I’ll shop a Cashmiriana… I think they like the climate here. (I’ve been to Aberdeen once. I remember I thought it was a shining bright city – many houses were of white stone, am I right?)

  8. Those are very beautiful trees, it must be great having them on your garden
    I hope you have the best happy new year!!

  9. Dear Alistair, Your Rowan trees are lovely! Wishing you the Happiest of New Years! May it be your best gardening year yet! It is great to have found you in 2010 and looking forward to many wonderful and enlightening posts in 2011.

  10. I think rowan trees are fairly uncommon where I live. I can’t think of any I’ve seen around here. I’ll have to look into the reason — I’m not sure if it is because of our climate or if people just aren’t aware of them.
