Planting & Care
The Brandywine Flowering Crabapple will perform best if you plant it in well-drained soil in a spot that receives full sun. Plant in a hole twice as wide but just as deep as the root ball. Once planted, cover the ground with a thick layer of mulch.
Watering: As soon as you plant your tree, saturate it with water. If you live in a hot or dry area, water your Brandywine twice a week until it is established. Other climates can water once a week, achieving 1 inch of water each week. Once established, only water as needed during long periods of drought.
Fertilization: Add a 10-10-10 fertilizer in early spring each year if desired.
Pruning: Prune off dead or diseased branches in late winter after the coldest months have passed, but before the spring blooms appear.
