Homeowner Growing & Maintenance

Prunus is easy to grow and adapts to most conditions. Feed once a year with a slow release fertilizer. To give your plant the best start possible, we include free fertilizer with every order.

Interesting Notes

Our 5 gallon Cherry Trees are generally 3 years old 5-6 ft tall and will most likely produce fruit the year after planting. All cherry trees require a pollinator for best production.
