Tree Planting: Planting a mature Prunus ‘Ukon’ / by Charlie Noton

The Tree Research team were pleased to manage the planting of a mature Prunus ‘Ukon’ in a fantastic private garden in Norfolk for Arne Maynard. The best part is watching the tree canopy being opened with gradual care.

‘Ukon’ tolerates most soils and is one of several Japanese cherries with yellow or green flowers. It is commonly base grafted to reduce the risk of the trunk of top grafted trees being overpowered by the weight of the spreading, arching branches as the tree matures. A fantastic specimen!
