Sweet and Decadent Mouth-Watering Fruit in 1 Year
Why Stella Cherry Trees?
Love cherries? Don't wait for them. We devote years to growing and pruning these trees so that your Stella Cherry Tree produces fruit in the very first year!
Plus, it’s ideal for small spaces. If your gardening space is limited, the Stella is perfect. And unlike most other Cherry Trees that require two to bear fruit, Stella is a self-pollinator, so you only need a single tree to have bushels of your own juicy cherries every season (though more trees mean more fruit). These cherries are ideal for snacking, baking, canning and freezing for maximum versatility.

Planted this tree in 2017 along with a Black Tartarian Cherry tree...neither have given a single cherry yet :(
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review! Cherry trees can take a few years to fruit which is much faster than a tree grown from seed. Make sure to visit plantingdirections.com for recommendations on care including fertilizing your trees and reach out if we can help!
Best Customer service ever.
Very responsible group! I have purchased 7-10 different items. Blueberries, peach, cherry. Lost 1cherry. ( insurance is cheap) Shipped replacement, I was not happy , shipped me another. ( the replacement had serious graft issues and our winds may destroy it) THEY immediately responded and new tree in the ground . Graft was taped well and time will tell. The peach trees are going CRAZY ! Thank you FGT
Nice tree, quick delivery
Cherry tree arrived on time as promised with buds. Only 1 branch broken. I put sealer on it. The root ball seemed kind of loose but it seems to be healthy. Thank you.

Beautiful cherry tree
Looking forward to this beauty coming alive in spring! It's been around a month since it was planted. I plan to couple it with a Reiner cherry
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a sunny spot that will give your tree a minimum of 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. Although it will thrive in almost any kind of soil, avoid locations where the soil will remain soggy for prolonged lengths of time - choose an area with well-drained soil. When you're ready to plant, dig a hole that's as deep as the root ball and about three times the width. Then, place the tree, back fill the soil and water to settle the roots. Finally, spread a layer of mulch over the surrounding soil to preserve moisture.
2. Watering: During the growing season, if your tree receives at least an inch of rain every 10 days then no additional irrigation is necessary. If the season is hot and dry, then you may need to provide some additional water. The best way to water is by using a slow trickling garden hose left at the base of the tree. This will allow the water to penetrate the soil more deeply and prevent it from running off over the soil surface. Make sure the ground is fully moisturized all around the root system.
If you're not sure when to water, simply check the soil about 2 inches down - if the soil is dry, it's time to water.
3. Pruning: A year after planting your tree, prune your tree during winter. Shape the tree to encourage horizontal branch growth with space between branches. And prune once a year as necessary to remove weak, drooping branches.
4. Fertilizing: Fertilize in the spring and mid-summer using nitrogen fertilizer twice annually, applying 2 weeks after planting and 4 weeks after the first application. Use a complete fertilizer such as 10-10-10 - but fertilizer application ratios vary upon the formulation, so be sure to follow package directions. When applying, be sure fertilizer is 6 to 8 inches away from the trunk.
Tips: In colder climates, avoid fertilizing after mid-summer to prevent new growth that won’t harden before fall frosts.
