Further, you will get to know more about caring for a weeping cherry tree to help you have your picture perfect garden.
A weeping cherry tree can grow in different types of soil. So you don't need to worry about planting it in the wrong soil. Just make sure that the hole you dig to plant the tree is bigger than the container in which the sapling/stem (in case of grafting) is placed.
The hole should also be at least as deep as the container. This will help in easy and faster rooting of the tree. Fill the hole with the soil in stages after planting. Add water to check and remove any possible air pockets.
The weeping cherry tree requires partial sunlight to grow. It can tolerate heavy sunlight too, but prefers a mild and warm weather. So plant the tree in an area that receives moderate amount of sunlight.
Mulching: Mulching is an excellent practice which involves filling organic matter in the area around the planted tree. It makes a great manure and the tree can absorb the required nourishment from the soil.
Weeping cherry tree care can be arduous at times, but for gardening enthusiasts, this is a small price to pay for the splendor that the tree will exhibit in spring. To maintain it well, carrying out regular pruning is a must.
Start pruning the tree when it is young, so you don't have to deal with hard and heavy branches later. In spring, when the tree is full of white flowers, it should have a droopy but neat look to it. Pruning the unhealthy twigs on time can also help in preventing infestation and other problems associated with the tree.
Since this tree needs constant moisture, it also attracts a number of fungal and bacterial infections and pests. For this, regular pest control is required.
If the leaves and bark appear dark brown instead of the usual bronze, the tree could be infected with Leaf Spot or Twig Canker, both bacterial infections. Check for holes in the leaves. This is a sign of a fungal infection called Red Spot.
Use these tips to create a masterpiece in your garden. By spring time, you'll be able to show off your splendid white weeping wonder!
