We recently bought a PRUNUS SPRING GLOW Ornamental Cherry tree and it never really did too well after planting. We watered it well, but still after 3-4 weeks of watering the leaves are droopy and falling. What are we doing wrong!?



Surprisingly, you may possibly be over watering it. The genus Prunus hate saturated roots and will quickly succumb to root rot. Free drained soil with a good soak once a week with a good moisture retentive mulch around the base out to the root ball size is best.
