    Weeping cherry tree growth

    I am having a problem with the growth of my 1 year old Weeping cherry tree. I understand that it was not grown by seed that it was grafted to another tree. I know to take off all the branches that grow below the graft point. This tree was purchased from a home center. This tree came with about 6 long branches weeping almost to the ground. I had 1 branch die over the winter. My problem is it won't grow any new branches out of the top of the tree only the trunk, where I am taking the branches from. What do I need to do to get more branches to grow? My zone is 8.
    Thanks for any help

    There is really nothing you can do to force a tree to grow, as far as I know. Was it properly planted and is the graft a viable one?

    RE: Weeping cherry tree growth

    It is difficult to answer your question not seening your tree. But cultivating
    and improving soil structure and adding fertilzier does hurt. There are
    so many "claims" and methods to improving general growth and health of trees, that it is hard to tell what really works.

    If you want to give it a try... here....
    1. cultivate and add 3 parts peat and one part steer manure to soil.
    2. add a wetting agent to help improve root zone activity.
    3. add high nitrogen fertilzier (water soluble)
    4 try adding growth hormones to soil also

    If that doesn't induce some kind of new growth, you may have some kind of sap flow problem caused by poor root development.
    good luck
