How to Plant and Care for Pink Flowering Trees

Finding an area with the right growing conditions is an essential first step when planting any tree. Begin by learning what your tree species prefers regarding sunlight, soil quality, and moisture needs. After understanding those constraints, you can begin preparing a hole in which to plant your tree. 

The hole you create needs to follow a specific set of dimensions to allow for optimal root expansion. A suitable planting hole is double the width of the tree’s root ball and is as deep as the root ball is tall. That gives the roots a chance to spread and ensures the trunk’s root flare is at the correct elevation. 

If planting and caring for trees with pink flowers is your goal, you should take up a maintenance routine that includes focused pruning. Use your pruning to promote the greatest possible quantity of blooms. Such an approach often involves timing your pruning during certain parts of the season. Remove spent flowers at those times and be sure to perform some general pruning as well, including the removal of dead and broken branches. 

Another way to help your pink flowering trees thrive is to give them fertilizer. Each tree has unique needs for fertilization. Some need frequent applications, while others will not. You will find many different fertilizers that are useful to different sets of plant species. Finding the right fertilizer will help your pink flowering tree put forth its most vigorous growth.
