Bracket Fungus

I have a flowering Cherry which has bracket fungus. I am going to remove the tree and as many roots as possible. Can I replant in the same soil straight away or do I need to leave the soil for a period of time? I am probably going to plant a weeping willow.

You will need to remove as many of the roots as you can to help your new planting.

There are companies that can grind the stump of the tree.
As long as the soil is prepped and ready for planting, you can do so.
I would have a soil test done to properly prepare the soil.

Prunus Accolade

What should a Prunus accolade look like in November? My new Prunus accolade has lost all its leaves now (November). I have a different type of Prunus tree in the garden which never loses its leaves. Is this right?

Prunus accolade is winter hardy in zones 5 and warmer, while some Prunus species are hardy in zone 4. If you are in zone 4, perhaps this is the difference. Otherwise, your tree could be suffering from transplant shock, which is very common in the first year:

Flowering Cherry Tree Problem

My flowering cherry tree has what looks like nasty growths around the bottom of the trunk. Why is this and how can I treat it?

It is difficult to tell what the issue is from this description.
If you could take a picture of the tree and the growths that you mention, it would aide in making an identification for you.

Flowering Cherry are susceptible to disease and pests.
This is likely a fungus disease. Prune out any dead material and dispose of.
You can apply a fungicide.

Flowering Cherry Tree

My 2-3 year old flowering cherry tree has turned brown (started with the leaves turning brown) and appears to be dead. Could this be the Ambrosia Beetle as this beetle killed a weeping cherry last year?

Ornamental Cherry Looking Sick.

Hello,
We have 2 ornamental cherries in our front garden. One is in full bloom and leaves are now filling out. But the other seems to be stuck at the budding stage and any little leaves that have appeared are looking yellowy.
We have just put alot of mulch around the trees, would that have effected it?
Thanks
Lisa

Hello,

Thank you for sending us your gardening question. When mulch is piled up thick around a tree, it suffocates the roots and allows no oxygen to get to them. This can also cause the roots and lower trunk of the tree to decay. As a general rule, do not put more than two inches of mulch around your tree, and keep all mulch at least a four inch circumference of no mulch at all around the very base of the trunk.
