Question: I received an Ornamental Cherry tree from someone. He had it since this spring and never planted it. I planted according to directions. The soil is red clay but it looks ok I plantd it in a sunny area about a week ago,when should I prune it? thank you
Answer: Since you've only recently planted your tree, give it until next spring to become established in your landscape. Then, after it finishes flowering, prune it back.
Best wishes with your garden!
