From Seed to Sweetness: Cultivating Cherry Trees in Pots Step-by-Step | November 18, 2023


Step 1: Obtain Cherry Seeds

  1. Harvest Seeds: Collect seeds from fresh, ripe cherries. Select cherries that are healthy and free of diseases or pests.
  2. Clean Seeds: Remove the flesh and rinse the seeds thoroughly under running water to get rid of any remaining pulp.

Step 2: Stratification

  1. Dry the Seeds: Allow the seeds to dry for 3-5 days in a cool, dark place.
  2. Cold Stratification: Place the dry seeds in a plastic bag with moist peat moss or sand and store them in the refrigerator for about 10-12 weeks. This process simulates winter conditions and encourages germination.

Step 3: Sowing the Seeds

  1. Prepare Pot: Fill a pot with well-draining, nutrient-rich soil.
  2. Planting Depth: Plant the stratified seeds about 2 inches deep in the soil.
  3. Watering: Water the soil thoroughly and keep it consistently moist.

Step 4: Germination and Early Care

  1. Location: Place the pot in a sunny, warm location.
  2. Germination Time: The seeds will typically germinate in a few weeks, but it may take longer.
  3. Watering: Keep the soil moist but not waterlogged.
