If you are considering planting weeping cherries in the landscape, it helps to become familiar with weeping cherry growing tips. Weeping cherries grow and bloom best in full sun, but they tolerate light shade.

Weeping cherry flowers attract butterflies and hummingbirds, so avoid the use of insecticides while the flowers are in bloom.

Water the tree — up to 84 gallons of water — once per week during dry periods. While weeping cherry trees don’t perform well in wet conditions, they need water to grow and bloom properly, especially in sandy soils.


Prune the weeping cherry right after it flowers in the spring. Remove water sprouts, or limbs that grow upright, and any dead limbs. Trim any branches that touch the ground. Make cuts at a 45 degree angle, about one-quarter inch away from buds. Thin out branches that rub against one another.


Remove any suckers that grow up around the base of the tree. Cut them off at ground level with pruning shears.


Check for insect infestation, as scales, borers, aphids and spider mites all pose problems for weeping cherry trees. Hand remove any insects and egg sacks. Remove insect damaged wood. Treat the tree with horticultural oil or insecticidal soap following the package directions.

Lay a 3- to 4-inch layer of wood mulch around the tree. Start the mulch about 6 inches away from the base and spread it to a 3-foot diameter around the tree. This suppresses weed growth, maintains moisture and temperature levels in the soil and adds nutrients as it breaks down.


Look for signs of disease, including yellowing and browning leaves, rotted areas and dying limbs. Look for signs of canker, mildew and rot. Cut any diseased branches from the tree and dispose of them. Treat the tree with fungicide, such as horticultural oil, as a preventative using the package directions as a guide.

Types of Junipers Trees

Fact Types of Junipers Trees



Types of Junipers Trees are coniferous plants in the genus Juniperus Cupressaceae cypress family. Depending on taxonomic viewpoint, there are about 50-67 species of juniper, widely distributed throughout the northern hemisphere, from the Arctic, south to tropical Africa in the Old World, and to the mountains of Central America.

Types of Junipers Trees

Juniper vary in size and shape from tall trees, 20 to 40 m, to columnar or low-growing shrub with long trailing branches. They are green with needle-like leaves. They can be either monoecious or dioecious. Female seed cones are very distinctive, with fleshy, fruit-like scale merger, which fuse together to form & quot; berry & quot; -like structures, 4-27 mm, with 1 to 12 unwinged, hard-shelled seeds. In some of these species & quot; berries & quot; red-brown or orange, but in most they are blue; they are often aromatic and can be used as a spice. Seed maturation time varies between species from 6 to 18 months after pollination. Male cones are similar to those of other Cupressaceae, with 6 to 20 scale; most shed their pollen in early spring, but some species pollinate in the fall.

Juniper berry is a spice used in a wide variety of culinary dishes and is famous for the main flavoring in gin (and responsible on behalf of gin, which is short for the Dutch word for juniper, Guinevere).

Cascade Bonsai


Cascade Bonsai 2Choosing a tree to turn into a Bonsai is not an easy task. It’s especially difficult if you want to grow something like a cascading style of tree. Can you use the pine tree as a cascading tree? Can you create a cascade bonsai.

I have traditionally always thought of the pine tree as being too upright for this artistic and crazy style of Bonsai. However, my experience of pine always has been of the dull variety that is grown in plantations and they have to be very straight up and down!

You can use pine as a cascade bonsai. One of the most preferred ones is the Japanese Black Pine. This tree is idolized above many for its ability to create beautiful bonsai trees of many styles, from informal upright to cascading and others as well.

So, the Japanese Black Pine will work well as a cascade bonsai. You can also try the Japanese White Pine, a Mountain Pine and Scotch pine for your cascade bonsai requirements.

Personally I like the more Asian style of trees for this type of bonsai style. The more twisted that the tree can become, the better I think. Before making such a tree, have a good look on the internet and out in the real world for inspiration for your cascade bonsai. I believe that once you know the image of the tree that you are looking for and wanting to create, you’ll know if a particular type of tree will be any good.Cascade Bonsai 5

The only real thing to watch out for when growing this type of bonsai is that you should only never use trees that really don’t like to be bent. If you search for a variety of tree and you cannot see it in a ‘non-upright’ variety in any pictures (or there are more than 50% of the pictures as uprights) then you might want to look for a different variety.

Also, chances are that the nursery that you visit for your tree will know just what the end result of the tree would be if it just grew naturally and will be able to help you to decide if the tree you are purchasing will be any good as a cascade bonsai.

Feel free to go for a cascade bonsai. While perhaps the ‘Western’ varieties I might not go at the first go, you might well work just fine with a pine. Remember, the skill is with you – not necessarily how good the tree is at a particular style.Cascade Bonsai 4
