First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need. Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system. Once the tree is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material. Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets. When finished, water thoroughly. To insure your plants a successful growth rate and productive life, plant your seedlings per the instructions included in your PlantMeGreen package.
Flowering cherry trees need 8 hours a day of direct sunlight and lots of water to thrive. Water regularly without over-watering. A slow, long watering is the best. Flowering cherries need a 4 foot diameter of unobstructed space to grow in. In order to encourage a strong tree structure and vigorous growth, prune in late fall or winter.
