Harvest Months
In spring, while the ground is moist, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of the tree. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer.Feed and water cherry trees regularly throughout the summer, particularly during their first two years. Fruit trees do not suffer weed competition well. Keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. Pruning cherry trees can be undertaken in summer to improve their shape and remove any damaged or crowded branches.
Plant the cherry tree in a sunny border in any well drained soil. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole. Fruit trees should be fastened to a stake to prevent them from rocking in windy weather. Drive the stake into the ground prior to planting. Staking after planting may result in damage to the root ball of the tree. Plant fruit trees at the same soil level as they were in their original pots and firm them into the ground. Fasten the tree to the stake using a tree tie. Water well.When growing cherries in containers, repot into well drained, soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. As container grown plants increase in size they will require repotting into increasingly larger pots up to 60cm (2') diameter.

Cherry Stella 2012-09-02

I have had my stella from van meuwen for four years and have a healthy crop of fruit every year, the Stella are delicious and I normally have plenty to share with friends and neighbors. My garden is so small I ran out of room, so was forced to leave my cherry growing in a large pot, thankfully it doesn't seem to mind at all.
