Regarding Prunus trees

There are over 400 genus of Prunus trees so they are a very popular tree. You can get Flowering Cherries, flowering Apricots, Flowering Peach and also flowering Almonds in the prunus genus. Weeping cherries are a favourite of mine.

Prunus need plenty of light and in good well mulched and good draining soil. Not a bad idea to give them a balanced NPK fertiliser in the early Spring.

Spring is when they flower and so plant, if you want to get the benefit of your first look at the flowers they will provide, by mid winter (Autumn to mid winter is best time for planting).
