Planting & Care

1. Planting: Kwanzans grow best in moist, well-drained soil and full to partial sun (at least 4 hours of sunlight daily).

Dig your hole just as deep and twice as wide as the root ball. Leave a small mound of dirt in the center of the hole to set the root ball on and carefully spread the roots in the hole. Backfill your hole, place your tree, and water the surrounding area. Do not cover the crown with the soil...only cover the roots. Finally, spread mulch over the surrounding soil to conserve moisture.

2. Watering: Water your tree when the top 2 inches of soil dries (a slow trickle with a garden hose for about 10 minutes is recommended).

3. Fertilizing: Flowering Cherries will not require fertilizer for the first two years. After that, apply 1/10 pound of actual nitrogen per year for each year of the tree’s age, with a maximum of 1 pound per year. Apply it once in the spring, or spread the nitrogen into 2 to 4 equal applications over the spring and summer.

4. Pruning: Removal of the current year’s old, faded flowers and fruit clusters will promote flower buds for the following season. Prune the tree during in winter to remove dead or damaged branches.
