Hertfordshire, United Kingdom
My Cherry tree only blossoms around the last forks in the branches, is this normal? It's a reasonable sized tree and was here when I moved in 3-4years ago. The first year I took out a lot of the upper branches and congestion. However this tree puts on 2-3 ft per year. In the second year I took out most of the vertical growth at the top, and did a similar thing last year (but only the longest of the growth. It has had a few cherries which were pink in colour but the pigeons had most of these. I see other cherry trees around which are overloaded with blossom. I believe that after flowering is the time to prune so what to do this year? Also, can anyone put a name to it?
