    This is one of the most popular double flowering cherry trees available. In spring the tree is laden with large double, deep pink flowers shortly before the bronze foliage appears. In autumn the dark green leaves turn bronzy orange before they fall. A great tree for avenue planting or as a specimen tree planted in grass.

  • Garden care: When planting incorporate lots of well-rotted garden compost in the planting hole and stake firmly. Prune in summer to reduce the risk of silver leaf and bacterial canker. Cut back any dead, diseased or branches which cross to healthy wood.

  • Q:

    How do I plant my Cherry blossom tree?

    Hi, What is the depth of hole I should dig for the Cherry tree 10L pot please? What type of compost should I use? Should I plant the pot the plant comes in as well or remove it before planting? How often should I be watering this tree if I plant it within the next two weeks? i.e. Ever other day for two weeks, etc. Regards, Scott

      Hello Scott, You should dig a hole twice as wide and deep as the existing rootball of the plant. You should then dig in lots of composted organic matter (or John Innes No 3 compost) and backfill until the plant will sit (without its pot) at the same soil level as it had in the pot. You can then gently backfill the sides around the rootball and firm it down without compacting it. As for watering, this will depend on a number of factors, but to be sure all you need to do is keep an eye on it and water it when the surrounding soil feels dry. We do have an article on how to plant on our site which you may find useful - just click on the following link to go straight to it. http://www.crocus.co.uk/features/_/artcat.114/ I hope this helps.
