Recommended timing

Cherry plum seedlings July Rose can be moved into open ground in spring or autumn (from April to October).

In spring, trees are transplanted before the beginning of the period of active sap flow, provided that they are at rest. When buying seedlings with a closed root system, moving to open ground is carried out at any time from April to October.

Seedlings with an open root system are most often purchased from specialized nurseries in the fall. Autumn planting is most preferred for plants.

When planting cherry plum in the fall, during hibernation, the plants are easier to adapt to a new place

Choosing the right place

The most successful place for placing cherry plum trees can be called the southwestern or southern slopes. The ideal option would be a protective barrier from the wind and bad weather from trees or buildings from the north or north-east side. In addition, the following factors are important for the plant:

  • lack of shading;
  • the presence of loose, well-drained, neutral soil;
  • lack of waterlogging and contact with groundwater.

In favorable conditions, cherry plum will develop faster, give high-quality and abundant harvests

What crops can and cannot be planted next to cherry plum

Cherry plum is compatible with crops such as apple, gooseberry, raspberry, black currant, maple, elderberry. Maple stimulates the fruiting of cherry plum, elderberry blocks the attacks of aphids.

Uncomfortable cherry plum with birch and various fruit trees, except for the apple tree.

Experienced flower growers recommend planting ornamental bushes and grass under a tree so that falling fruits do not deform when they fall

Selection and preparation of planting material

Cherry plum sapling July Rose must have a healthy appearance:

  • well-developed fibrous roots;
  • the absence of cones, growths, dry and rotten branches on the roots;
  • healthy, smooth bark without cracks or damage on the trunk and branches.

2-year-old seedlings should be purchased, since older crops are more difficult to adapt, harder to take root, and are characterized by later fruiting.

Before planting in open ground, the root system should be placed in water for several hours. To stimulate growth, growth stimulants are added to the water: "Epin", "Heteroauxin", "Kornevin".

Landing algorithm

The planting hole is formed in such a way that the root system can be placed. The optimal hole size for a 2-year-old cherry plum seedling is 40 cm x 100 cm.At the bottom of the planting hole, place a drainage made of expanded clay, crushed stone or broken brick, up to 15 cm thick.The nutrient mixture for filling the planting hole should consist of equal parts:

  • black soil;
  • sand;
  • bottom peat;
  • humus;
  • 400-500 g superphosphate;
  • 3 liters of wood ash.

A planting pit with a nutrient mixture must be prepared in advance, covered with roofing material or slate to prevent the washing out of nutrients during the rainy season. When favorable conditions occur, the seedlings are transferred to open ground. Part of the land is taken out of the landing hole and the algorithm is followed:

  • a mound is formed in the center of the hole;
  • in a small distance from the center (at a distance of 10-15 cm), a peg up to 1.2 m high is driven in;
  • the seedling is placed on a mound in such a way that the roots are freely distributed along the slopes of the mound, and the neck of the root system is located at the top of the mound;
  • the seedling is sprinkled with earth, while carefully tamped, tied to a wooden peg;
  • a tree-trunk circle is formed around the tree;
  • a young tree is watered (10 liters of water per seedling).

2-3 hours after planting, the trunk circle can be mulched with sawdust, peat, hay or compost

Follow-up care of the culture

Regular care of the hybrid cherry plum July Rose consists of the following steps:

  • watering once every 3 weeks with deep moistening of the soil 25 cm deep at the rate of 3-4 buckets of water per adult tree;
  • removal, weeding of weeds for aeration;
  • loosening to ventilate the root system;
  • care for the near-trunk circle (mulching during the first 2-3 years of life with a 10-centimeter layer of humus or peat with periodic changes 3-4 times per season);
  • sanitary pruning of the branches of the July Rose, formation of the crown 2 times during the growing season (in spring, mainly in March before bud break, - removal of lateral branches by 20 cm, rejuvenating pruning at the 8th year of life);
  • feeding with nitrogen-containing mineral fertilizers in the spring for 3-4 years of life;
  • inspection for signs of diseases and pests;
  • timely harvest;
  • preparation for winter - whitewashing of trunks to prevent the appearance of burns in the spring, covering the trunk of trees with a casing made of sheet iron with sacking wrapping (relevant for the regions of the Middle Strip and the Trans-Urals).

After pruning the old branches of the July Rose, the cuts should be treated with garden pitch to prevent the entry of pathogenic flora

Diseases and pests, methods of control and prevention

The hybrid variety of cherry plum Kometa Rannyaya is resistant to pathogens and insect infestations. In some cases, cherry plum July Rose can become infected with the following ailments:

  1. Trees become infected with coccomycosis from mid-July, brown or red spots appear on the foliage.

    As a prophylaxis for coccomycosis, you can apply a lime solution to the trunks of cherry plum Yul'skaya Rose, treat the crown with Topsin-M, Horus

  2. Marsupial disease provokes a decrease in yields by more than 2 times. Fungus affects fruits, which are characterized by an elongated shape, green color with a white bloom.

    The fruits of the cherry plum July Rose, affected by marsupial disease, should not be eaten, they are destroyed, in the spring the trees are treated with Bordeaux mixture or the preparation "Horus"

  3. Fungal moniliosis is a monilial burn or fruit rot. In the spring, burn ulcers form on foliage, flowers. Fruit rot affects ripe fruits that become dry. Subsequently, the fungus can spread to the trunk.

    For the treatment of moniliosis on the July Rose, a solution of mustard powder (80 g of dry mustard per 10 liters of water) or the drug "Fitolavin" is used, which is used to treat cherry plum trees of the July Rose variety during the spring.

The main "enemies" of culture are:

  1. Caterpillars of the subcortical leafworm. They make holes in the bark and wood, as a result, the tree slows down, the side branches dry out, and the yield decreases.

    Subcortical leafworm butterflies can be caught using pheromone traps; insecticide treatment is required to deactivate the larvae

  2. Plum aphid. It settles on the July Rose in huge colonies, sucks juices from plants, causes a decrease in yield, sometimes - the death of fruit trees.

    To get rid of plum aphids on the July Rose cherry plum trees, you can plant aromatic herbs nearby: coriander, mint, parsley, dill; to process with drugs "Confidor", "Fufanon", "Aktara"

  3. Wrinkled sapwood. A small beetle, which "with appetite" absorbs all parts of the July Rose variety.

    If larvae or adult beetles are found, the damaged branches of cherry plum should be promptly eliminated July Rose

Timely prevention helps to prevent the manifestation of diseases:

  • thinning the crown;
  • removal of vegetation remnants under trees before winter;
  • treatment of trees with 1% Bordeaux mixture (Hom mixture) before flowering and 2 weeks after flowering;
  • treatment of trees with a 3% solution of copper sulfate in early spring before the start of sap flow.

The larvae of the mucous sawfly eat the leaves, in order to get rid of the pests, you can spray the cherry plum trees July Rose with an infusion of wormwood, chamomile, use the biological agents Fitoverm, Lepidocide


Description of the cherry plum variety July Rose gives a general idea of ​​the main characteristics of the plant. The fruit tree is characterized by early maturity, high winter hardiness, average drought resistance, high productivity and active fruiting. With proper care, ripe fruits are large in size and have excellent taste characteristics.

Reviews about cherry plum July Rose

Valentina Vasilievna, 56 years old, Aksai

Five years ago in one of the local nurseries purchased a cherry plum seedling Yul'skaya Rosa. At first, they did not believe the promises of the seller, who promised super early fruiting, large size of fruits and natural plum taste. Last year, our young cherry plum surprised us with its frequent ovary and many fruits. Very tasty cherry plum, really similar to plum in taste. The only drawback is that it is not easy to separate from the bone for making jam or jam.

Nikolay Permyakov, 62, Sevastopol

On my site cherry plum July Rose has been growing for 9 years. The tree bears fruit actively, from the 4th year of life. Blooms early, begins to bear fruit in June. I grow it for sale during the beach season, so I am very pleased with this variety. The fruits are very large, tasty, with an ideal presentation. The harvest last year from one tree was about 9-9.5 kg.
