Planting & Growing Weeping Cherry Trees

The height of these Weeping Flowering Cherry trees makes them suitable for small gardens, but equally they are fabulous enough to make a statement in large gardens. They're also a great option for growing in pots on a patio if kept well watered. Cherry Blossom trees tend to grow well in most soil types, even in slow draining clay soil where many species wouldn't.

Prune Weeping Cherry trees in the dormant season, removing branches growing upwards or straight down. Pruning to an upwards facing bud encourages a good weeping shape.
