Cherry trees are a sight to behold in the spring, when they’re covered in white or pink blossoms. After that, they produce the delicious cherries that most people know and love. To grow your cherries, it's best to choose a warm sheltered site, or grow against a south- or south-west facing wall or fence. When frost is forecast, protect the blossom, but uncover it during the day to allow access to pollinating insects. The trees are best planted 15-18' apart.
