Prunus Sargentii Rancho Tree

Upright Sargent’s Cherry Trees

from £39.99 (ex. VAT)
( £47.99 (ex. VAT) inc. VAT)

This Upright Sargent's Cherry tree produces a mass of large, pretty pink flowers in spring which are complimented by lovely reddish-bronze new foliage that turns a glossy green before bursting into vibrant shades of yellows, reds, oranges and maroons in early autumn.

Good for year round interest, the dark brown bark of Rancho takes on a glossy red hue. A height and spread of 6 x 4 metres in 20 years can be expected and this pollution tolerant Cherry tree will grow well in most soils apart from very wet or shallow, chalky conditions.

Planting Advice for Prunus Sargentii Rancho trees

When planting flowering cherry trees, such as this Upright Sargent’s Cherry, it is important to prepare the planting area well. Pot grown cherry blossom trees can be planted at any time of the year.

To prepare the site, remove all weeds and grass within a metre of your desired planting hole. Dig a hole as deep as your root mass and approximately 1.5 sizes wide. We recommend digging a square hole as this encourages the roots to grow straight as opposed to around inside the hole. To help your tree establish more effectively, we advise applying root grow (sprinkle in the hole for pot grown trees), especially if you have poor soil. Gently loosen the roots and place into the planting hole.

Using 50% of the original soil and 50% compost, fill in the hole and firm around gently. Make sure not to bank the soil up around the collar of the tree as this can cause problems. We recommend using a stake and tie when planting, which will ensure your roots are well anchored. To see how to use a tree stake and tie, watch our informational how to videos.

After Care Advice for Upright Sargent’s Cherry trees

If you’re planting in dry weather, water well and regularly for the first few months. The same goes for spring and summer planting. Make sure to keep an eye on your young tree and increase watering if there are extended periods of warm or dry weather. If you’re planting in autumn, you may only need to water your tree a little, make sure not to over water.

Once planted, it is important to keep the area free of competing weeds and grass for the first 3 years. Using a glyphosate based weed killer or installing mulch matting and bark chips will aid in this. Do not simply mow the grass around the area as this will only encourage it to grow more vigorously.
If you know your area is prone to rabbits, we would advise using a rabbit guard.

Pruning Advice for Prunus Sargentii Rancho trees

Although it is possible to simply leave your flowering cherry tree to its own devices, it can be encouraged by gentle pruning. If you prune your tree for the first few years it will create a more balanced branch framework. Prune after flowering i.e. after the petals have dropped but before the new shoot growth appears.

After two to three years, you will only need to remove any damaged or unwanted branches. However, the formative pruning that you have already carried out will have led to a healthier tree, less likely to need this.
