How to Plant
STEP 1) First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need.
STEP 2) 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.
STEP 3) Remove the plant from the pot and place the root ball in the hole. 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.
STEP 4) Once the plant is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material.
STEP 5) Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets.
STEP 6) When finished, water thoroughly.
Care Guide

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.

I think the tree is dead

The tree looks quite sad. I think it might be dead

I just reviewed but

I just left a review about the tree we purchased being dead. I noticed the stars being all 5 when it submitted. I did not intend 5 stars. I intended 2.

Two cherry blossom trees

I was very surprised at how big these threes were for their price! Once they've arrived, they were nicely packaged! Nothing was damaged and the soil was still very moist! Took a week to get these trees. I'm very happy with my order!

My cherry blossom tree is dead.

Hello Phan,
Your tree is most likely experiencing transplant shock seeing as it has only been 2 weeks since your order was received. We will be sending instructions on how to check the health of your tree in a private message. We hope to resolve this with you quickly!
