Q.Can My Dwarf Cherry Be Nurtured Back To Health Somehow?

Zone 18109 | DavidDJ added on June 27, 2022 | Answered

I have a single Dwarf Cherry marked as “cherry dwarf flowering 12-24” it has been planted in a large 22” pot but has dwarfed to nothingness. It has no leaves however it has eyes on it still. Can it be nurtured back to health somehow? Should I buy a companion since the type of tree is unknown?

It will need careful attention. The biggest issue is likely wet root zone. It does need to dry out some between waterings in order to take hold in the soil. Be sure to let it dry down to 3 or 4 inches between waterings. You may want to treat with a fungicide. This can help alleviate any symptoms of disease.
