    The benefits of the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag…

    By growing these trees in burlap bags, the roots grow into the cloth, rather than circling around a pot. This forces these trees to put out thousands of fine hair roots. These roots bring moisture and nutrients into the plants. This means you get a tree that will become established quicker and provide you with superior and faster growth.

    These will be the easiest trees you have ever planted! Simply dig your hole, place the Drop 'N Grow™ bag in the center (burlap included) then use excess dirt to fill the hole. That's it!

Very Satisfied!
This tree came about three feet high with several branches, not just a stick as I have received from some companies. I was charged the shipping fee when it should have been free and they have refunded it. I will try to remember to update in the Spring, but for now I am happy.

Planting & Care

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

Pink Weeping Cherry Tree Planting Diretions

Flowering cherry trees, also known as ornamental cherry trees, will decorate your lawn with bursts of beautiful flowers. These cherry trees don’t produce edible fruit, but they do provide tons of ornate pink, purple, and white blooms. Flowering cherry trees commonly to grow about 24 inches per year, but in some cases up to 36 inches per year.


Choosing a location: They grow best in moist, well-drained, acidic soil (around 6.5 to 7.0 pH) in a spot that receives full to partial sun. For the best results use a soil testing kit before planting to be sure your soil isn’t too acidic or alkaline. The best time to plant the cherry tree is in the spring after the last frost, or in the fall about six weeks before the first frost.


Planting Instructions:
1) Choose a location that will receive full sun or light shade and well draining soil.
2) Dig your hole just as deep and twice as wide as the root ball. Leave a small mound of dirt in the center of the hole to set the root ball on and carefully spread the roots in the hole. You’ll want to keep the “crown” (tip of the root ball) of the tree roughly an inch above the surrounding soil level. If it doesn’t reach that point just add a bit more dirt to the mound underneath.
3) Back fill your hole roughly about two-thirds of the way full. Water the tree and fill the rest of the planting hole with soil. Do not cover the crown with the soil; only fill to the point the roots were covered in the original container from the nursery.
4) Spread a 2-3 inch layer of mulch over the root area of the tree in a 3 foot radius around the base of your tree. Keep the mulch at least 8 inches from the trunk.


Watering: Water the tree to a depth of 12 inches (roughly 7 1/2 gallons) when the top 2 inches of soil dries (a slow trickle with a garden hose for about 30 minutes is recommended so the water doesn’t bead away from the intended watering area). This could be about twice a week in the summer, or every three weeks in the fall. Watering depends on several factors such as the soil type, rainfall amounts and temperature so making sure the top 2 inches of soil is dry is the best way to determine if watering is needed.


Pruning: Pruning the flowering cherry is necessary to maintain a healthy, vigorous tree. Removal of the current year’s old, faded flowers and fruit clusters will promote flower buds for the following season. Prune the cherry tree during the dormant period to remove dead, damaged or diseased branches. Cut small branches less than 3/4 inch in diameter with pruning shears. Use a pruning saw for larger branches. Remove branches just outside the branch collar.

*Tip: Sterilize your pruning tools with a basic household rubbing alcohol to ensure a healthy cut during pruning.


Fertilizing: Flowering cherry trees do not require fertilizer for the first two years providing you keep weeds in check and the soil is healthy. Heavy mulch around the base of the tree protects and nurtures the soil, while keeping the roots moist and cool. When it does come time, fertilize the tree with nitrogen. Apply 1/10 pound of actual nitrogen per year for each year of the tree’s age, with a maximum of 1 pound per year. Apply it once in the spring, or spread the nitrogen amount into 2-4 equal applications over the spring and summer.


Cherry blossom trees are a very special category of trees and true harbingers of spring. Every year major publications write articles and publish pictures about the spectacular show these trees exhibit in Washington D.C. In Japan, the cherry blossom is more than just a beautiful flowering tree. There are thousands upon thousands of cherry blossom trees in Japan, and each year the Japanese people closely anticipate and follow the blossoming of the trees. When the trees are in bloom, people come in large groups with their families and friends to view the flowers and to enjoy festivals with food, drink and music. The significance of the cherry blossom tree in Japanese culture goes back hundreds of years. In their country, the cherry blossom represents the fragility and the beauty of life.

When is it okay to plant a weeping cherry tree in northern U.S., dry soil?
Shannon S on Jul 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: They can be planted all year, as long as the ground isn’t frozen. If you plant your tree during the summer, especially during a heat wave of drought then give your tree extra water. The best time to plant is in the fall, six weeks before the first frost so your tree can get rooted into the ground before winter, or in the spring six weeks after the final frost, giving it time to become established before summer heat sets in. Keep in mind that planting during the summer still gives your tree enough time to get rooted in before the winter.

Why can't this tree be shipped to California?
Reese on Aug 12, 2018
BEST ANSWER: California has strict USDA importing guidelines that we have to abide by. We are sorry for any inconvenience!
When should you plant this tree?
Molly D on Jul 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I live in Las Vegas and plant in early March or October here.March is cool and April and May moderate and gives the roots a chance to get down before the heat. October is temperate here and same idea; before we have any "cold", the roots have a chance to get going giving the tree a good opportunity to "settle in". Hope this helps!

debbie b on Oct 26, 2018

BEST ANSWER: I’ve only had it one year so it has not flowered. I don’t believe it will produce fruit
