If you've been wanting to plant a cherry tree in your yard but didn't know where to start, here's some honest advice from the American Phytopathological Society (APS), the organization that's dedicated to healthy plants for a healthy planet.
By following these guidelines, homeowners can avoid the factors that predispose or stress plants making them more susceptible to diseases or insects.
