How best to plant Carmine Jewel cherry?
I have read that cherries don't like soil that gets soggy, but I've read nothing about this particular cherry in that regard. I am in a high water table neighborhood, clay soil; the unamended parts of the yard are very wet yearly (will get standing water after a good rain although it drains within less than a day) late winter-spring, although dry out around June when rainfall decreases. Even the well amended raised beds are pretty squishy right now.
Would it be best to just plan on growing the Carmine Jewels in pots? Will they do well in pots? If in pots, what mix should I use? and, how much winter protection will they need?
If there is a good chance of success in ground, perhaps with more amendment or raising the bed, I would prefer that.
