Answer: Transplanting can be quite a shock to a plant's system. If your tree is otherwise healthy, it should be okay this spring. You didn't mention what type of cherry. Most sweet cherries are not self-pollinating: 'Garden Bing" and 'Stella' are the two exceptions. (In other words, they need another cherry tree within 200 feet to pollinate.) Sour or pie cherries are self-pollinating. Cherry trees generally take 3 to 8 years to bear fruit.
Water when the top 3 inches of soil is dry. Let the water soak slowly down to about 3 feet, at least past the root zone. Use a balanced fertilizer (10-10-10) in early spring after the last chance of frost. For young trees, apply 1/2 pound per year of age. Water thoroughly before and after applying to prevent fertilizer burn to the roots, and spread fertilizer out to the plant's canopy, or drip line. I hope this info helps!
