Weeping Cherry Tree Does Not Flower?

We have a weeping cherry tree which has been planted in the same position for approximately 5 years and each year it has an average of about 1 flower a year.


I feed it regularly every 4 months with Dynamic Lifter and have it on a dripper system for watering in the summer. I read in June of this year that you can feed monthly with a solution of Epsom salts (1 teaspoon per 2 litres of water), but still it has only 1 flower. My wife has come up with a solution of treating it with an axe therapy, but I would like to to keep trying as the leaf growth is very strong and it is a healthy tree. Any suggestions or hints would be valuable.

They often don't bloom until they are 6 years old or older, so that you have had any blooms is pretty amazing...of course, that is where I am, not sure what zone you are in.


This site has the best info I have found about them.


This site warns about over pruning as it takes away from the graceful waterfall (weeping) look.

Another good point this article makes is to avoid pesticides whenever possible since these lovely trees are so popular with wildlife.

It talks about fertilizing needs also....which I may be the naysayer about, but I disagree with and rarely fertilize anything.

Sending your tree lots of healthy wishes and the hope that next year it hits its magical full bloom glory!!
