Cherry Tree Fruit Splitting
Cherries will split because of too much water. When it rains the roots take up water and as the air is humid, does not allow the cherry to "breathe". With container grown cherry trees, you can place an umbrella (we kid you not) over the tree to control watering to a better degree. If you find your garden planted cherry tree regularly has split cherry fruits, consider improving drainage close to the tree e.g. soakaways.

Planting Your Cherry Tree
Dig a hole three times wider than the pot in came in but just as deep. Place your cherry tree in the middle and fill with the remaining soil.  If soil quality is in doubt, mix the excavated dirt with well rotted manure or compost to a 50:50 ratio. Water well (1-3 times a week depending on weather) for the next few weeks. Do not add fertilizer to the removed earth as the roots need to be encouraged to spread out.
Do not plant if the ground is frozen or waterlogged.

Planting Bare Root Cherry Trees
Soak the Cherry tree roots in a bucket of water for a few hours. Dig a hole wider than the rootball. Make a mound in the middle of the hole to support the centre of the cherry tree rootball whilst allowing you enough room to trail the roots out. The more you can spread them out the better. The previous dirt line on the tree will be evident, the mound needs to be large enough to ensure this is in line with the top of the hole. Placing a piece of straight wood across the whole gives you something to check alignment with. Basically don't plant the Cherry tree any deeper than what it was before it was rudely hauled out of the ground. Fill the voids with the fine earth first, you are aiming to eliminate all or most of the voids. Gently compress to firm the earth but not compact it. Do this in layers around 4-6 inches at a time.

Cherry Tree Aftercare
Add a mulch layer. This is to prevent weeds and grass competing for nutrients within a 1m or 3ft radius around the tree. Use gravel, mulch mats, manure, bark or whatever you want to block the light getting through. Do not use herbicides on or near a young tree.

Before new leaves appear in Spring, apply a Nitrogen/Potassium/Phosphorous fertilizer although they mainly need Nitrogen. Nettle compost soups are a cheap way of achieving this albeit labour intensive.

Container Growing Cherry Trees
One of the biggest problems you will have with container growing cherry trees is lack of water. If the soil is dry around 15cm or 6 inches into the soil it is time to water. We use a soil moisture meter because we are lazy, cautious and love gadgets.

Birds And Cherry Trees
There are many methods of deterring birds from eating your beloved cherry crop from threatening to sue them in bird court for theft to painting each cherry with lemon juice but by far the most effective method is to surround the tree with netting.

Take a look at our 
TOP SELLING FRUIT TREES, Wet ground issues then choose a PEAR TREE first, followed by APPLE TREES. For more information on pollination please look at  POLLINATION EXPLAINED or choosing the CORRECT POLLINATION PARTNER

Fruit Tree Life Expectancy
Most fruit trees will give you AT LEAST 40 years of fruit. Pears can go to 70. Records of 200 year old trees exist but this is the exception, not the rule.
