Kelly Givens explains some of the problems that can affect cherries and how to protect the harvest.
More in Outdoors
Common problems with cherry trees include leaf spot, seen here, bacterial canker and brown spot. Remove any signs of diseased foliage, dipping your pruners in full-strength rubbing alcohol or a 10 percent bleach solution between cuts and taking the diseased foliage out of the garden area for disposal.
In many areas of the country, you'll need to stick to a spray schedule in order to get a good harvest. Spray schedules for insecticides and fungicides are available from your local cooperative extension service.
