Provide a good sized pot for your blossom tree, making sure your pot has a hole in the bottom for drainage. Flowering cherries grow best in Ericaceous soil so be sure to add plenty of this in your container. Once planted you must water regularly, especially for their first year to establish their roots within the soil.
