How To Care

Spring and fall are ideal times to plant your Weeping Yoshino Cherry tree. However, if you avoid freezing temperatures and extreme heat you can plant your flowering cherry tree almost any time of the year.

Yoshino cherry trees thrive in full sun and are adaptable to any well draining soil. Water deeply when planting and about twice weekly for about 3 months while your new tree is establishing. Once your tree is established you will only need to water during extreme dry periods. Adding a layer of mulch around your tree is recommended especially with newly planted trees. This will help keep the soil moist and cool in summer and protect the roots in winter as well.

Feed your tree when planting and in early spring with a slow release fertilizer.

Pruning is not recommended for weeping ornamental cherry trees unless necessary. Prune in winter or early spring to remove any dead, dying, or crowded branches.

The best way to prevent disease and pests is by providing the right care for your plants. Scale, aphids and mites are insects that can affect flowering cherry trees. You can treat these pests naturally with horticultural oil, neem oil, or insecticidal soap. For severe infections you can use pesticides like carbaryl, also known as Sevin. Tent Caterpillars and Cankerworms are sometimes an issue for flowering cherry trees. These can be treated with an organic pesticide spray, Bacillus thuringiensis (Bt). Occasionally fungal issues can occur especially in humid areas or when overhead watering is used. Generally, treating after infection isn't extremely effective, so if you have problems yearly, treat in early spring with fungicides to prevent infection. Neem Oil is an organic method of treating and preventing some fungal diseases and pests. It can be effective, but the entire tree must be coated in order for this method to be effective. Most fungal problems are cosmetic issues for the leaf and do not affect the overall health of the tree.

False promises

Tree arrived damaged and the team of Angela and Tony went out of their way to ensure it wasn’t replaced. Very disappointed. On the plus side I learned about Excellent service from them and no issues. Avoid this company.

Good morning Matt, I am truly sorry you feel this way. As an online nursery, we rely on to help of our customers to submit photos and answers questions so that we can help in the best way possible. We thank you for the photos you have submitted however the photos of the tree do not match our shipping policies and procedures. We do not send packing slips with our plants and we do not leave tags on our trees. The photos you have submitted include additional evidence of deduction that conclude the tree is from a different company and we cannot be held accountable to replace their products. Sincerely, Angela

Not quite what I expected

I bought this tree as a birthday gift. It was sent quickly and came in a sturdy, solid box. Upon opening it, I was a little underwhelmed. The branches were chopped, so it looks unlike the other photos in the reviews which show long weeping branches. It's rather asymmetrical. Many leaves were filled with holes and insect(?) damage. There was an insert in the box saying this was normal for this time of year, but gave no indication to exactly what caused this and how to prevent it in the future. It's ok, but I wouldn't have chosen this specific tree in a nursery if I had the chance to see it first. Hopefully it does ok and eventually fills out. I've planted it and so far it seems to be doing alright.
