Cherries grow best in full sun in a location where cold air or frost will not settle. Choose a protected location that is sheltered from wind. Water regularly, at least weekly, during the first year. Keep the soil evenly moist but not wet. Deep soak established trees when the top few inches of the soil is dry. Cherries prefer well-drained soil. Mulching helps retain moisture and stabilize the soil temperature. When harvesting cherries, pick them with the stems attached, and avoid tearing off the fruit spur that will produce fruit year after year. An added bonus with cherry trees is the beautiful blossoms that precede the fruit each spring.
