Plant Care Tips

Planting Instructions
If soil in container is dry, water plants prior to planting. Dig a hole twice the diameter of the root ball and 1.5 times deeper. Mix fertilizer into the soil and return a few inches of soil mixture to the planting hole. Make 3 to 4 slits from the bottom of the pot halfway up the sides. Plant with the top of the root ball at ground level. Back-fill around the root ball with the rest of the soil-fertilizer mixture and build a short berm of soil around the plant to create a watering basin. Water the plant thoroughly to settle the soil around the roots. Keep new plants well-watered the first summer, checking for water needs daily or every other day. Covering the root ball and area around the plant with mulch will help keep roots cool and conserve moisture. Keep mulch from touching tree trunks and plant stems.
General Care Description
Loamy to sandy soil is best and should drain well. These trees can thrive in soil that is not very rich or fertile. Your cherry tree will be able to tolerate some drought, but it is ideal to water it regularly at least for the first growing season so that roots can become established.
