Need to plant this tree ASAP
Tree had excellent packaging. Only had to prune off one small limb that was damaged in shipment. Had very limited leaves on the tree so time will tell how well it does once it gets planted. We currently have blustery North winds so I elected not to plant it until this front blows through.

Delicate trees
This review is only for the Lapin. These are delicate trees. I received 2 (the original purchase and a replacement tree) and both died. I suspect it was the constant rain falling in my area, but I also planted a peach tree around the same time which is still going strong. No blame on fast-growing-trees. They honored the insurance and both Lapins looked decently healthy when received. Their customer service is also fast and attentive.

Really Big Tree!!!
We were scared we would loose this tree because it arrived totally limp...and the Montmorency cherry was perfect. So we put it into a big planting container from another tree and kept it cool and in the shade and after a week it started perking up especially in the cool mornings and then limp again. After a month or more of easing it out into the sun we have it planted and it's Beautiful!!! So Big and what a beautiful tree. Next year cherries for sure!!!

Still hopeful
I received this as the 3rd tree of the 3 I ordered. It didn't look good coming out of the box but I pruned the dead leaves, watered it and used the root rocket in the pot. Unfortunately this little tree did not make a come back. I emailed over the weekend regarding the tree and that it had died. I was concerned that I would have to use my warranty to get it replaced. I came to work to find an email back letting me know that a new tree would arrive in 2-7 days and that this would not affect my warranty! What a pleasant surprise for a Monday morning! I am so pleased with my other 2 trees and now this amazing customer service?! I will continue to order trees from this company! I have 3-4 more to go at this point.

A little concerned at first as the tops of the tree, while explained they would be trimmed, looked more broken off then a clean cut, the cut was a little rough where the bark peeled in strands. It's been a few weeks now and it is doing well. New branches are beginning to sprout.

I'm not so sure about this one
I was a little concerned when the tree came, because the foliage was looking a bit rough. It had a lot of wilted leaves and leaves with brown not only at the edges but in the center as well. I planted it the day it arrived, and thus far it seems to be doing half decently. It's lost most of the damaged leaves, and there doesn't appear to be much new growth, but all the leaves haven't wilted, and there do seem to be a fairly decent number of healthy leaves. I guess time will tell on this one.

It's worth noting, there were not blossoms on it this year, so it apparently won't fruit this year. Not that it matters anyway, as I would have plucked off any fruit that would have started to grow. For the first year, new trees need to focus on root growth and nothing else, and it may very well be doing exactly that, hence the lack of any real growth up top. It's worth noting that the Rainier cherry tree I bought seems to be thriving a bit more than this one, but we'll see how it goes.

Lapins Cherry in Zone 9
This tree arrived to me not in the best of health. To be honest this has been a trend with cherries Ive bought from Unferstandably cherries are difficult trees to keep healthy, they're prone to the potential to be weak, requiring constant supervision and nourishment. I would suggest fgt pay closer attention to their cherry stock, and to not send sub par quentionably unhealthy trees. As for this lapins, after I treated it with a holistic blend I made by pure chance, about three weeks ago, it has shown significant improvement. Its now growing more than ever before, and has now put out one single flower in the month of May that appeared just yesterday. It seemed to me to be harboring bacterial canker, which could have come from the nursery, although I dont know for sure. I am overall pleased with FGT, mistakes happen, but I hope that the cherries are more carefully inspected going forward.

I’m one hour north of Houston Texas. This tree hasn’t given fruit yet and I’ve had it a year, but out of the three different trees I bought last year it has been the healthiest. It’s grown several feet with lots of branches.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Lapins Cherry Tree

Lapins Cherry Tree  Planting Diretions

The Lapins cherry (Prunus avium ‘Lapins’) is a low maintenance tree, that adds beauty and color to your landscape for several months out of the year as well as providing sweet cherries. Bursting with white blooms in the spring, loaded with red cherries in the summer and a beautiful fall display of red, orange, and yellow foliage. Growing in USDA zones 5-9, this cherry tree can also tolerate a much broader range of temperatures and produce cherries in more southern areas as it requires less than 400 chill hours. The lapins cherry is self fertile making it great for a small landscape as it also only reaches 15-20 feet tall/wide and only requires minimal annual pruning to aid in fruit production the following year. Since it is self fertile, you will only need the one tree for the fruit to grow.

Location: Choose a sunny spot that will give your cherry tree a minimum of 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. Although it will thrive in almost any kind of soil, avoid locations where the soil will remain soggy for prolonged lengths of time.

Planting Instructions:
1) Dig a hole that is as deep as the root ball and three times as wide.
2) Position the tree in the hole and fill it about half-way with soil, tamp to remove air pockets, then fill the hole completely.
3) Water to secure the tree and remove any additional air pockets in the soil.
4) Add more soil if necessary after settling.
5) Spread a layer of mulch over the soil around your cherry tree to help keep the soil moist, encourage healthy growth and protect your tree against competing growth.

Watering: During the growing season, if your tree receives at least an inch of rain every 10 days then no additional irrigation is necessary. If the season is hot and dry then you may need to provide some additional water. The best way to water is by using a slow trickling garden hose left at the base of the tree. This will allow the water to penetrate the soil more deeply and prevent it from running off over the soil surface. Make sure the ground is fully moisturized all around the root system. Mulching will greatly assist in maintaining soil moisture.

Pruning: A year after planting your cherry tree, prune your tree in the late to end of winter while dormant. Shape the tree to encourage horizontal branch growth with space between branches. Prune once a year as necessary to remove weak, drooping branches. These are usually poor fruit bearing branches and removing them will encourage positive air flow and healthy growth. Also make sure light can penetrate the center of the canopy.

Fertilization: Good, nutrient rich soil should only require the addition of nitrogen. Fertilize in the spring and midsummer using nitrogen fertilizer twice annually applying 2 weeks after planting and 4 weeks after the first application. Use a complete fertilizer such as 10-10-10 and apply at the rate of 0.05 pounds of actual nitrogen per dose. Fertilizer application ratios vary upon the formulation so be sure to follow package directions. When applying, be sure fertilizer is 6 to 8 inches away from the trunk around the tree to prevent the roots from burning. Organic fertilizers such as manure or blood meal are highly discouraged as their nitrogen levels cannot be measured. Keep in mind that cherry trees require high levels of nitrogen early in the season and lower levels during the late summer.

Pests: Cherry trees can be susceptible to brown rot. The best prevention for this problem is proper pruning to provide good air circulation. Be sure there is ample room between branches. Remove any infected blossoms, fruit or leaves and inspect your tree continuously to catch any early signs of the disease. To spot brown rot, look for brown, soggy flowers or mummified looking fruit on your tree. For control once the disease is recognized, use a sulfur spray 4 times: when flower buds are pink, when flowers are open, right after petal fall, and 2 weeks after petal fall.

It was during World War 2, when you heard the sirens, you had to turn all the lights out in the house, I was a little girl. living in the country, I use to go down the country road to my friends house, she had a big cherry tree in the front yard, we climb the tree and pick cherries, then put them in a little box, then load them in a wagon to sell for 10 cents a box, if I live long enough to get cherries on my tree, I will share them with everyone on my street.
