#ProPlantTips for CareGive Utah Giant a planting site in full sun and well-drained soil. It does best with at least 6 hours of direct sunlight a day.
Improve the drainage of your soil by creating a raised bed or mound. Add additional soil to 18 inches high and 3 feet wide. Plant directly in the mound.
Sweet Cherry trees also like to have plenty of air circulation. Don’t plant too close to structures or in low-lying areas that might trap air.
Plant where it will receive the drying power of the morning sun. Overnight dew will quickly dry once the morning sun shines on the foliage.
Give your trees a moderate amount of water on a regular basis. Mulch to a depth of 3 inches and spread to 3 feet outside the canopy. Be sure to allow at least 6 inches of room all around the trunk.
Sculpt your fruit trees with horizontal or 45-degree angled scaffolding branches. Careful management will improve the health and productivity of your tree.
Keep your fruit trees under 10 feet tall with annual summer pruning for size control. Any fruiting tree can be kept smaller with regular pruning to make harvest and netting for birds a lot easier.
