Watering your tree regularly during the first growing season is important. Afterward, continue to water when the soil is dry later!

To see if the soil is thirsty, use the finger test. Put your finger into the soil near the base of the tree. If the soil is damp, skip watering that day. If the soil is feeling dry, provide your tree with a good soak.

We recommend adding a layer of mulch around the base of your Pink Spires Crabapple Tree. Doing so will help protect the root system. It will also conserve the water.

Your Pink Spires Crabapple Tree requires light pruning. Ensure that you remove any broken, diseased, or crossing branches so during the next spring season, your tree grows beautifully.
