Picking brussels sprouts should begin when the sprouts are one inch in diameter. Harvesting brussels sprouts is best done when maturity occurs in cooler weather. The plant will withstand frost and can be harvested until freezes occur.
Cherry trees are vigorous growers and can be trained to fan against a wall or fence. Be sure to place a net over the trees to protect the fruit from birds. After harvesting, prune the trees back to young stems or new buds.
