|Nanking Cherry (Prunus tomentosa)|
Plant nanking cherries in full sun or minimal shade for best flowering and fruit production. Two or more plants are required for cross pollination and should be planted a minimum of 4 ft apart. Plants can be purchased as bare root stock or as root balls. Dig the hole twice as wide as the root wad and deep enough so that it sits at the same depth as it was previously planted (top of the root ball or look for a darker mark on the main stem indicating the soil line on bare root stock). Loosen the roots and place the plant in the hole. Back fill about half full and tamp down before adding the remaining to the soil line. Water deeply right away and for its first season.
Happy Gardening! :)
