Planting Advice for Prunus × subhirtella 'Autumnalis Rosea'

  • Pot-grown trees can be planted at any time of the year as long as the soil is not waterlogged or frozen.
  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill one the shrub is in place.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove your prunus from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your tree in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
  • Apply a tree guard to the trunk to deter rabbits.

Aftercare Advice for your Winter Flowering Cherry
