Plant plum and cherry trees directly into well drained, sunny borders that have been enriched with well rotted manure or garden compost. When planting in containers, repot into 30cm pots in a well drained, soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Plant trees at the same soil level as they were in their original pots and firm them into their new containers. Water well and position in full sun.
Feed and water mini fruit trees regularly throughout the summer. In spring, while the ground is moist, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of trees grown directly in borders. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer.Remove some of the fruit from Plum Black Amber each year to allow the tree to focus on producing larger, better quality fruits. Mini fruit trees require only light pruning in summer to keep their shape and remove damaged or crowded branches. Container grown plants will require repotting into increasingly larger pots up to 60cm (2') diameter as they increase in size.

cherry and plum mini fruit trees
By Caroline Desborough 28-05-2016
I received my cherry and plum mini fruit trees earlier this year, the plum tree is growing nicely but the cherry tree is completely dead. They are both planted in containers in John Innes No. 3 and placed in full sun

plum and cherry
By Karina Zagorska 09-08-2015
I had my trees delivered last autumn and could not wait to see them blossoming this spring. Neither cherry nor plum had a single blossom. I do not think these mini trees are something I would buy again and I regret I did not go for "proper" ones.
