If you’ve ever seen a Cherry Blossom Tree, you know how spectacular they are. As nature starts to unfurl from her winter rest, few early spring sights are as delightful as the blush of cherry blossoms carpeting the treetops.
Caring for cherry blossom trees requires an understanding of their seasonal needs. In early spring, these delicate trees, known as sakura trees in Tokyo, begin to bloom with pink blossoms, enveloping parks and lining streets with an ethereal beauty.
These trees thrive on well-drained soil that is rich in organic matter. As a master gardener, I recommend applying a slow-release, balanced fertilizer early in spring, as the tree prepares for blossoming.
