Growing cherry

Growing cherry:

Cherry trees are easy to grow. They are hardy and vigorous, and can stand even intense frost.

Put them in a sunny place, since the absence of direct sunlight often results in a lack of flowers. For some varieties it is best to put several plants together, so that cross-pollination of the flowers can ensure good fruiting.

Adult cherry trees do not need watering, while the young trees, just planted, need sporadic watering, so provide at least a couple of buckets of water in the hot, dry days of summer.

Cherries are deeply compromised by stagnant water, so plant your cherry trees in cool and very well drained soil, and avoid watering them too much.

Pruning is generally done only in the early development of the plant, in order to give the canopy a wide, well ventilated shape. Adult specimens are not pruned, except in the case of branches that are broken or damaged by winter cold or bad weather.

For some varieties, however, it is important to periodically remove basal suckers, which tend to grow rapidly at the expense of the main plant and the fruit.

Apply fertilizers in the autumn and late winter, providing mature manure, to be spread at the foot of the stem, or slow release granular fertilizer, rich in nitrogen.
