Planting Prunus 'Kiku-shidare-zakura'
Our Japanese flowering cherry trees are pot grown so can be planted all year-round. We recommend sprinkling Rootgrow when planting to enhance the growth quality.

When planting:

1. Dig a square hole as deep as your root mass and approximately 2x as wide
2. Mix 50% of the original soil with 50% compost
3. Remove the tree from the pot and gently loosen the soil around the roots.
4. Place the tree into the hole, fill it with your soil mix and firm around gently (avoid banking the collar of the tree)

1. Remove weeds and grass around the area for the first couple years of the growing season.
2. When planting in spring and summer: water well for the first few months and increase watering if there are periods of hot or dry weather
3. When planting in autumn: you may only need to water a little
4. Use a rabbit guard if prone to rabbits in the area


Prunus 'Kiku-shidare-zakura' can be left to develop and grow natuarlly, however it is best to do any heavy pruning to develop the shape in its early years. Pruning must be done when the tree is dormant in the colder months but can be limited to any branches growing vertically, up or down Pruning to an upward facing bud will encourage the development of the weeping shape. Also prune any random shoots that may be produced from the stem to retain productive growth from the crown.

Pruning time: When dormant in the late autumn and winter months
