    The benefits of the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag…

    By growing these trees in burlap bags, the roots grow into the cloth, rather than circling around a pot. This forces these trees to put out thousands of fine hair roots. These roots bring moisture and nutrients into the plants. This means you get a tree that will become established quicker and provide you with superior and faster growth.

    These will be the easiest trees you have ever planted! Simply dig your hole, place the Drop 'N Grow™ bag in the center (burlap included) then use excess dirt to fill the hole. That's it!

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Sweetheart Cherry Tree

Sweetheart Cherry Tree Planting Diretions



Find a spot in your yard that gets at least full sun and has well-draining soil. Plant your Sweetheart Cherry tree in a hole twice as wide and as deep as the root's ball. When you're done planting, add 3-4" of mulch near the base, but don't mulch around the trunk.


Watering: Water immediately after planting. Continue to water during the first summer if conditions become dry.  


Pruning: Prune in mid-July if the tree produces too many cherries and the branches become weighted. Otherwise, prune dead or diseased branches in the dormant season.  


Harvesting: You can simply pick the Sweetheart Cherries off the tree when ripe.  Eat immediately or keep them crisp in the refrigerator. If you aren't going to eat them within 2-3 weeks after harvest, make them into a jam or freeze them.
