Plant Care Tips

Planting Instructions
If soil in container is dry, water plants prior to planting. Dig a hole twice the diameter of the root ball and 1.5 times deeper. Mix fertilizer into the soil and return a few inches of soil mixture to the planting hole. Make 3 to 4 slits from the bottom of the pot halfway up the sides. Plant with the top of the root ball at ground level. Back-fill around the root ball with the rest of the soil-fertilizer mixture and build a short berm of soil around the plant to create a watering basin. Water the plant thoroughly to settle the soil around the roots. Keep new plants well-watered the first summer, checking for water needs daily or every other day. Covering the root ball and area around the plant with mulch will help keep roots cool and conserve moisture. Keep mulch from touching tree trunks and plant stems.
General Care Description
As with other sweet cherry varieties, Black Tartarian is intolerant of drought but cannot withstand soggy soils. They thrive in evenly moist soils that dry out to a depth of 3 to 4 inches between waterings.
