Tai Haku Tree
I have my heart set on a Tai Haku great white cherry tree for my garden but I would like some advice before I take the plunge. Its a new garden as the house was only built last year so I want to get a bit of impact and hopefully some blossom next year if not this!
Firstly, my garden is south facing but the tree would be at the far end where there is a large hedge. I have pretty heavy soil, the place where the tree would be is on a slope but it has been fairly soggy down there over the winter. Will it be ok?
Secondly, when is the best time to plant the tree? And where should I consider buying one from? I want it to be a decent size so that its not completely shaded by the hedge.
Any help/tips/advice would be greatly appreciated...
