How to Plant and Care for Yellow Flowering Trees
Directions for planting and caring for your yellow flowering tree may vary depending on which tree you choose. In general, prepare your nursery-grown sapling by unpotting it and teasing out any roots encircling the root ball, as they can girdle and kill the tree slowly.
Choose a spot for your tree where the soil drains well and gets the correct amount of sun for its species. Dig a hole that’s a little deeper than the root ball and twice as wide. Throw a few handfuls of well-rotted manure or compost in the bottom of the hole, and place the sapling in so that it is at the same level as it was in its pot. Fill in around it with fertile soil, tamping down as you go. Water thoroughly when done.
Your newly planted tree will benefit from regular watering every day or so for the first few weeks after it’s planted. Once you see new growth, you can scale back. For most trees, except the drought-resistant Palo Brea, you want to give them about an inch of supplemental watering if they are not getting that much from rain.
Most trees benefit from the application of a balanced, slow-release fertilizer in spring and early summer. Do not fertilize after mid-July, your tree is starting to prepare for winter and isn’t growing as much. Prune your tree to remove broken and diseased branches or any that are crossing and rubbing against each other.
