Q.Branches Growing Straight Up. How to Make Them “Weep”

doggcr added on June 7, 2013 | Answered

It’s a 4 yr old weeping cherry with what I call damaged bark about 1 ft from the ground. It wasn’t growing well the first 3 yrs, although the branches were bending down. . . I attributed the poor growth to the damaged bark. This sping it really took off, which we were so happy to see, but everything is growing straight to the sky. How do we train it to bend again?
