It's Easy to Plant your Pink Weeping Cherry Tree

Step 1 - Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Pink Weeping Cherry Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Step 2 - Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Pink Weeping Cherry Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3 - Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Pink Weeping Cherry Tree again after the transplant is complete.

To help retain some of that moisture, it's recommended that you place mulch around each plant to a depth of 2"-3" up to but not touching the trunk. Organic mulches such as wood chips also help to better soil structure as they decompose.

I bought my weeping cherry over a year ago and did not get any flowers this spring. It is growing nicely and has abundant leaves but did not flower. What could I be doing wrong?

The same with me! I planted this tree two years ago and I only had one small pink flower the second year too! It is healthy but the limbs are almost falling straight down one the trunk, there isn't much of gracefully arches that you would hope for in a weeping tree.... Waiting to see if next year it will look better..

Do I need two trees for cross pollination, or will one do?
Tom M on Jun 26, 2014
Best Answer: The Pink Weeping Cherry Tree is self pollinating, but if it has a mate to cross pollinate with then you'll have a much higher yield of flowers.

Hello, Can a weeping cherry tree (two inch caliper) that was a dug out with a ball which is wrapped in burlap and currently being stored outside at a nursery amongst other weeping cherry trees be adversely affected by current long island temperatures that have been low as the teens for the last five days? We put a hold/order on one of about eight weeping cherry trees (pink) at a nursery last Sunday but didn't get a chance to dig the hole at our house before the cold snap this week. Hi can a pink weeping cherry tree ball (2 inch caliper) surviving the freezeing temperatures in the teens we have seen on long island in the last 5 days? We are concerned we may have risked losing it.

what is the caliper of the 5-6ft tree?
DAwn H on Jul 18, 2014
Best Answer: Hello,
The caliper of a 5-6 foot tree is about the size of my pinky finger. When my tree came it looks like a good sized twig. A year later, it is now the size of my middle finger. I had no idea the tree would be so small and frail. It is grounded with a metal pole to keep it standing straight until it grows big enough to stand on it's own. I wished I had purchased a bigger version than I did. It will be a beautiful tree in 10 years from now.

Should I add anything in the hole before I plant this tree?
craigie on Jul 9, 2014
Best Answer: My trees are doing great. We just put in a wee bit of pay dirt and some top soil mixed in with the normal soil. I live in the high desert so it is amazing to us how well the two trees are doing! I cannot wait to see them in bud next spring...

I had a 15 year mature weeping cherry tree that was illegally cut down by my tenants. Legally, what kind of monetary value would you place on this loss ? I am planning on recovery.
rachel y on May 13, 2015
Best Answer: I believe I paid approx $100 for my tree which was very small. A large, 15 yr old tree must have been magnificent! I would say the value had to increase to at least $100 per year. So $1500 would be my minimum estimate.

Will my Trees and Shrubs Look Like the Photographs?

Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos.

Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.

Most dormant trees shipped in the

Bare Root trees are shipped without dirt or any green foliage showing. Some customers who have never planted bare root before, think that they received a "dead stick" with roots. These dormant trees are basically sleeping over the winter as most trees do. Because of their hibernation-like stage, this is a great way to transplant these trees. Since a bare root tree lacks foliage, they need very little moisture.

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You

Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
