    They should be starting to bloom very soon! Usually, it is April through June for most varieties. Some flower first, and some flower and leaf out at the same time.

    Trees are often grafted onto a hardier rootstalk to improve the winter hardiness of a plant, for one reason. Rootstalks in themselves are not usually a tree you would want. That's why it's important to remove suckers, so they don't take over the desirable top of the tree.

    Hawthornes are often used as a rootstalk for fruit trees. Here is an article you might enjoy:

    Since it is in the lawn, be sure to remove grass around it a few feet to protect it from mowers, weed eaters, and lawn pesticides. Mulch it well with a hardwood mulch. Hawthornes need to be well watered until established, and even then, need moderate water. That may be what it is lacking. They also need well-draining soil.

    Here are its care tips below.

    The second dose is usually due in early summer. Follow the instructions on the fungicide you are using. Continue to prune out branches where you can to lessen the transmission of the disease and improve the appearance of your tree.

    Once symptoms appear, the tree cannot be cured, but you can prolong its life with the measures you are taking.

    It isn't usually, since the berries are what are the most medicinal. There isn't much information on the safety of doing so.
