Looked great on arrival. It’s been in the ground a few weeks now and looks healthy. It never even dropped its leaves. Hopefully it continues to do well.
So far, delighted! Our tree arrived happy and healthy with lots of leaves. It is growing really well and I'm very optimistic. Thank you so much for your help. Meris Lang
I received the tree in good condition and kept shaded, watering frequently. I have yet to plant in the ground, however new buds are growing so I am hopefully for a good outcome.
I was very impressed with the health of the tree when it arrived. I did exactly what they said, unpacked immediately, gave it some water and put it in the shade; the following day we planted it. It drooped the first couple of days and I got a little concerned but realized I must have put a little too much water when it went in the ground. After reading about care of this chewy tree I realized that it didn’t need that much water and quit watering it but maybe once every second or third day. It has done beautifully and then of course the good Lord knows when it needs rain and he sends rain at the most perfect time. It has been standing tall and growing up healthy and strong!
They came boxed really well and the soil was wet when they came. They looked to be in really great shape. We planted them the day after and they are looking great.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Choose a sunny spot that will give your Lapins 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.
When you're ready to plant, dig a hole that's three times the width of the root ball and just as deep. Place your tree, back fill the soil, tamp down and water to settle the roots. Spread a layer of mulch around the surrounding soil to preserve moisture.
2. 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. If you're not sure when to water, however, simply check the soil about 2 or 3 inches down. If the soil here is dry, it's time to water.
3. Pruning: A year after planting your Lapins Cherry Tree, prune during winter. Shape the tree to encourage horizontal branch growth with space between branches. And prune once a year as necessary to remove weak, drooping branches.
4. Fertilizing: Fertilize in the spring and mid-summer 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 - 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.
Tips: In colder climates, avoid fertilizing after mid-summer to prevent new growth that won’t harden before fall frosts.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately, however we are currently experiencing delays and could take up to 11-14 days from date of purchase.
