Growing Calendar for Prunus Kiku-shidare-zakura-Tree
Delivery: Early November to Late April
Cheal's Weeping Cherry
Flowering cherry tree PrunusKiku-shidare-zakura is ideal as a focal point in the garden with its beautiful pink spring blossom and its weeping habit that gives this ornamental cherry tree the common name of Cheal's Weeping Cherry. This cherry tree is also known as Prunus serrulata Rosea. Clusters of double pink flowers smother the branches, and the young leaves are bronze-tinted in spring before turning green in summer.
Although flowering cherry trees are related to the edible cherries (they are all members of the prunus family) these ornamental cherry trees are grown for their spring blossom and good autumn colour. Many also have attractive satiny bark, so the trees remain interesting all through the year.
Unpack bare root trees immediately and plant as soon as possible after delivery.
Do not let the roots dry out!
If it is not possible to plant because soil is waterlogged or frozen keep the trees somewhere frost free and airy. Keep the roots just moist by storing them in damp compost or if outside conditions allow, heel the trees in to a patch of bare ground until you’re ready to plant them into their permanent positions.
Your bare root trees will be delivered at the right time for planting. Normally between autumn and early spring, depending on weather conditions.
All our ornamental trees are delivered with FULL PLANTING INSTRUCTIONS.

Not quite as big as we expected
Shrubs offer visual interest all year round – whether in full leaf, full bloom or with bare stems set against the winter sky.
If you want to add height to your garden and increase the vertical interest consider planting a tree in your garden. There are trees particularly suited for gardens which don’t grow out of proportion to your property or develop too thick a canopy that blocks out sunlight.
