Fountain cherry tree

Zone Derry nh zone 5 | M black added on April 24, 2016 | Answered

Due to the cold weather, my tree we just planted lost all the flowers. Will it grow green leaves now? Or is it just dormant? Still watering it and was given fertilizer when planted.

The Weeping Cherry Tree will flower first before the leaves appear.
Fertilizing is generally done in the spring when the leaves are just appearing.
A slow release fertilizer is best.
Do not reapply fertilizer since you all ready did so.
Make sure you are watering to keep the roots moist but that the planting site is well draining. Too much water and wet soggy soil will lead to root rot.
