Container Cherry Tree


Happybee33 added on October 12, 2015 | Answered

I have a flowering cherry tree, only a year or so old. The roots were starting to show in the small pot it was in so I have moved it to a larger pot but only realised near the end of repotting it that I had been putting in top soil! Should I repot it using a different type of soil/compost?

Top soil may be to compact for the tree. The roots may not be able to breath and take up nutrients.

I would either amend the soil or start over with a good quality potting mix.
