Caring and Maintenance

Water young trees regularly until roots are well established. Trim annually from mid to late summer. Apply some fertilizer in spring in order to promote healthy growth and a good crop. Optionally, mulch in spring. Check tree ties regularly and loosen any if necessary to avoid rubbing of the stems.

Planting

  • Planting Distance: 6m

Suited to almost all, well-drained and moderately fertile soils with pH between 6.5 and 7.5 in an exposed or sheltered location in full sun.
Before planting your tree, clean up all wandering weeds and keep a clean ring around the tree base. Water well during the first year until well established.

Autumn is the best season for planting trees, as the soil moisture and heat allow easier and faster root establishment and regeneration of damaged root systems.

This is an example of our polypot - note the fruit/ornamental trees we stock will vary in appearance according to species and season.
 
Customer Reviews

Average Rating: 2.0/5 (1 review)

Rating: 2/5

"The reasonably priced tree arrived promptly but had been heavily pruned, either to make if fit the box and / or remove dead wood.

Although it was advertised as "9 litre pot", it had recently been potted and was loose in the pot. I wouldn't have been worried about this or even if it was bare root, as long as I'd been advised accordingly. As professional growers, we will revive the tree and it will live but only with some TLC in a protected structure. It was not good quality & I was minded at the time to complain, but I hate complaining and decided to put it down to experience and keep 'Umineko'.

It was a cultivar I was particularly looking for to add to our arboretum's collection of Japanese cherries, (look up Bluebell Arboretum wiki to see our project aims etc).

I would be very reluctant to recommend or buy trees from Primrose again although, maybe if I had contacted them, they would have promptly addressed my concerns which I should have pursued at the time.

If Primrose feel minded to contact me I would be happy to discuss my concerns personally. As I'm currently travelling remote NW Scotland, I will be easiest to reach by email at
