Top Tips

  • Cover the cherry tree with nylon mesh or netting to prevent birds from stealing your crops - ‘Stella’ cherry trees are also known as the 'bird cherry' as they will steal most of your cherry crop if you do not stop them.
  • Add Rootgrow Mycorrhizal Fungi to give your plants a head start and establish more quickly.

Care Information

  • Best grown in moderately fertile soil in full sun.
  • If grown in pots, keep well-watered.
  • Apply a low-nitrogen fertilizer such as 5-10-10 in early spring, about a month before flowering.
  • Prune young cherry trees during winter dormancy to shape them into an open center or central leader shape.
  • Mature trees will just need a simple prune to remove dead or crossing branches or to open up the center or maintain shape; unlike other fruit trees, 'Stella' cherry trees do not need pruning to keep them fruiting.
  • Train fan-trained trees in spring. Prune established fans and carry out routine pruning on established cherry trees when harvesting the fruits in summer.
