Nanking cherry production - Knowledgebase Question

Question by akamai412

I planted 8 nanking cherry bushes 2 yrs ago. They're growing, and healthy. I never pruned them.
They didn't flower this year, and I haven't gotten cherries yet. What am I doing wrong?

Nanking cherries usually take 2-3 years to settle in before they produce fruit so yours will probably flower and develop fruit next spring. I don't think you're doing anything wrong. Allow your shrubs to grow without pruning this year. Next year they should flower and fruit for you. Enjoy!
