Who does not like cherries? I love them, so much that sometimes when I start munching on them I can not stop myself. I thought to myself today, hey why not research on how to grow a cherry tree from seed. So I went ahead and did just that.

It turns out that they are not easy to grow at all. First of all you have to find out if they grow in your area by either visiting a local nursery or snooping around the neighborhood to see if any of your neighbors have trees. You then want to grow the same or similar varieties of cherry tree, so grab a couple of cherries from a local market or neighbor and leave them out to dry.

Here’s What You’ll Need:

  • dried cherry seeds
  • mulch
  • potting soil
  • container or pot (optional)

It is best to collect your seeds over summer, and then start the stratification process. This usually goes on all winter long and involves exposing your seeds to cold temperatures before spring shows up and they begin to sprout.

Plant the seeds at least an inch deep, into the soil. Plant a few to improve your chances of getting one or two to sprout. Germinated seeds are ready for transplanting to their permanent location in the garden when they are 8 to 12 inches tall.

It may take a couple of years before your trees bear any fruit, so you have to be patient.
