Learn how to grow a cherry tree from a branch. While you can always grow a cherry tree from its seeds and nurse it all the way to maturity and adulthood, you can still skip all that process because this article will show you how to grow a cherry tree from a branch in a seamless manner.
Rid the branch of its leaves from the bottom and then peel the bark on both sides of the cutting to expose a white layer beneath it known as cambium. This is to ensure that new roots can seamlessly break through the cambium as the old bark is gone. While doing this, ensure the entire job is completely neat and free of dirt.
Insert the end of the branch cutting into a rooting hormone – a chemical used to promote root growth. To do this, you just have to insert the ends of the branch cutting which is, of course, the roots into the chemical medium.
Get a pot and fill it halfway with peat moss and place the cherry cut out branch inside and fill the pot again with peat moss to the topmost part of the pot only allowing some of the tip of the branch to be visible.
Cherry trees are infamous for being too difficult in taking roots downwards. To heighten your chances of making progress with the roots, you need to plant or use more than one branch. Multiple cuttings are the key here to succeed with roots.
