Seedling cherry

Here is a seedling sweet cherry, second leaf, last year it grew into a 36 inch whip. This year it is starting to feather, does it want to be an open vase?

It’s good that it looks to be growing in an open enough area. You can probably give it a chance to form a nice structure. Is the plan to graft over it, or see what kind of fruit it makes?

Earlier today, I dug/pulled up 3 seedlings which were growing under my NorthStar sour cherry. At least I think they are seedlings. For now, they are in pots and I’ll keep an eye on them to make sure that they aren’t just interestingly placed weeds.

Bob,
I bet they are seedlings because I do get them all around the area of my Northstar. I saw several this year.

You must be working a third shift to be out in the dark taking pictures! :grinning:

I plan to let it fruit, but I am not sure what kind of a long term project that would be.

We went out with friends last night so I didn’t get in till late but I still had to check my trees :slightly_smiling_face:

I actually took a half day, so I was in the yard from early afternoon on. Too much grafting and planting to do at this time of year. The seedlings were something that I remembered right before I went in. Like Scott, I think I need to get a hat with a headlight.
