cherry tree 2008/3/24 05:51
My cherry tree is blooming as are the rest of the many cherry trees in town, but my tree is only blossoming on the lower branches so far. Doesn't the cherry tree usually blossom uniformly? Is it sick? Does it need feeding? Thank you.

It is normal that cherry trees begin to blossom from the lower branches.

I expect the warmer weather for this couple of days brought your cherry tree into blossom gradually with the upper branches as well;) If not yet and the upper branches do not have the flower buds, it might be better to consider feeding after blooming (around May), which is said to be good even for healthy trees to make them bloom well next year.

As for how to feed, I suggest you to consult a specialist on gardening.

Just about every cherry tree I have seen in the last few days has had blossoms on the lower branches but none or very few anywhere else, including in Inokashira park on Sunday. Be patient, give your tree time... ;-)

Many thanks to MM and others for answering my cherry tree question. You were right of course. The cherry tree was just waiting for me to have more patience! It is now in full bloom as is my understanding. Thank you, again.
