Advice on Flowering Cherry Tree
I bought a small flowering cherry tree which had been grafted onto a base stump and planted it in my small front garden last year. On looking for advice on pruning I've read many notes indicating that flowering cherry trees can have problems with root growth damage to surrounding buildings etc after a few years. The tree is about 6 - 8 ft from the corner of our house and 3-4 feet from the pavement on a corner plot.
I don't know if the fact it has been grafted onto a differnt base stump may curtail the growth?
Will I have problems later and should I replace it with something else? If so what would you receommend?
