A cherry tree is a great addition to any garden if you have the room. I am lucky enough in Bulgaria to have two mature standard cherry trees. They produce a wonderful blossom in spring, and fruit heavily for a few weeks in late May. Just ensure you beat the birds to the crop. Excellent eaten straight from the tree or for making cherry brandy
How to Grow Cherries
1. If you are planting a new sapling see our guide on planting a tree here.
2. Cherry trees once established look after themselves, I mulch mine annually, but I couldn’t state whether this increases the crop or not.
3. For conserving and storing see our guide here, but if you are like me they will all disappear within days of being picked! Or else turned in to delicious homemade cherry brandy!
