Planting and care

  • Begin caring for a weeping snow fountain cherry tree by planting it correctly.
  • Place the tree in a hole that is at least twice as large as its root ball, and use soil that has been combined with light, organic mulch.
  • Before the tree is placed in the hole, the roots need to be loosened.
  • After the tree is in the hole, the hole needs to be filled with the soil and mulch mixture.
  • The tree must be watered well after transplantation.
  • Mulch the area around the tree, but make sure the mulch does not touch the trunk.
  • To keep the tree standing straight, tie it to a sturdy stake that has been inserted into the ground.
