I set three Amelachier plants in my garden six years ago. They are doing reasonably well but if anybody has some tips or growing experience would interested in what they have to say. Thanks.

When I planted young trees many years ago, I used to put a ring of cow manure 18" wide and 18" inches away from their trunks every autumn.

In the Spring I then mowed over what was left of the manure after the winter.

I planted mine about 10 years ago. I pruned it over the years to get a good shape. I underplanted it with some dafgodils and some summer sweet william, calendulas etc. I add a little compost around it in the spring but thats about all. Otherwise its left to its own devices

My Amelanchier was planted more than 20 years ago. It grows as a multi-stem and thrives on neglect and an occasional pruning.

Do you get any berries and do you eat them.

I always get berries and they have a good flavour. As do the berries of berberis darwinii and mahonia. But as a matter of caution i would not eat large quantities. I tend to make preserves from them.
