I just had a tree service give me an estimate on some tree work. He told me I need to top my cherry trees. They are tall and not thin, but not full. I get some blossoms, but no fruit. He wanted to take them down to 6-7 feet. Is this OK? And I also read you only do this in late summer, not winter. Is this true? I am in Seattle, WA. -
Is it okay to plant cherry trees in mid-winter (in the south of France, not very cold)? If so, how can we help protect it until spring arrives?
I heard cherry trees can be very sensitive when it comes to cutting them & then you are supposed to “paint” the branch to help it from bleeding out.
I don’t like to use anything I cant make myself. Any suggestions on the best approach?
We have a 40 year old flowering cherry blossom tree. It has been spectacular every year, so much so that we take photos of the grandchildren when at its best. Last year I noticed that it looked a bit sparce in places, and this year there is not one bud on it, and the branches that are reachable are dead. Do you know what could have caused this? It is quite distressing. Thank you.
What is soilless mix? I have a Japanese cherry tree. What kind of soil does it need? How do I make it myself? How do I make acidic soil for a container plant?
I planted a cherry ‘bush’ (this will be its fourth summer) with the understanding that it did not need another fruit tree to cross-pollinate. I’ve had NO fruiting, and this ‘bush’ is about 10′ tall!!
It blossomed last year but barely this spring. It is planted with/near vegetables – asparagus, tarragon, monarda, day lillies, climbing rose, clematis, rhubarb, black raspberries, potatoes, onion/garlic. These all are within a ten foot radius of the cherry bush’s main trunk. The trunk and branches have horizontal markings on the surface, about an inch long. What can I look for as to care of this bush? I want cherries!
How do you mix repellent for birds, cats, and dogs? I have a Bing cherry tree the birds are starting to circle over. I would like to enjoy my fruits.
