With all the new beds going in last years plantings are looking a little shabby. Time to spruce (cedar if you will) up the Cherry Trees and Bushes. A quick cleaning and some new mulch goes a long way. I do hope the Hanson Cherry Bush that split recovers, time will tell.
2018 – North Star Pie Cherry
I don’t know if it was the location or simply the breed. However the North Star Pie Cherry grew the best last year. The deer got a hold of it at the end of the year but it turned out to be for the best as they pruned it and caused the limbs to branch evenly. Looking forward to seeing how it grows in 2018.
2018 : Blackgold Sweet Cherry
The Blackgold Sweet Cherry is the only standard tree we’ve planted. If all goes well it should really fill out, however so far we haven’t seen any actual growth. Last year (planted) there were several leaves but no vertical growth. I’m hoping that means it was focusing on its roots. Stay tuned as I’m hoping to take monthly updates to track its growth this year.
