Dormancy Notice: This plant, like many others, enters dormancy or semi-dormancy in the late fall through early spring. *THIS PLANT IS NOT DEAD. It is completely healthy but upon receiving the plant, you may notice it exhibits fewer leaves, discoloration, or complete leaf drop. This is normal and essential to the plant's health. In fact, planting during dormancy promotes root growth, giving your plant a better start for spring, when new foliage will begin to grow.

How to Care for Profusion Crabapple Tree

Follow these guidelines for the best results

Step 1: Planting

Step 1: Planting

Remove a container-grown Crabapple tree carefully from its pot and, if your tree's roots are balled and wrapped, carefully remove the wrapping. Water a container-grown or balled tree well before you begin, because this helps keep soil in place around the roots. Place the tree in a pre-dug hole that's at least 1 foot wider in diameter than its roots, ensuring that you plant the tree at the same depth as it was earlier. Backfill the hole with soil amended with compost and water the tree well, ensuring that there are no air pockets around its roots. We highly recommend that you mulch your Crabapple tree with either a ground hardwood mulch or a ground cypress mulch depending on your local availability. Any type of mulch will do but cypress or hardwood mulch will be of a higher quality and provide better nutrition overall as they breakdown. Mulching helps to keep weeds away which will compete with your new investment for water and nutrients. A 2 to 3 inch layer of mulch is sufficient but remember to take care not to cover any part of the stem of the plant with mulch. Its better to leave a one inch gap of space between the mulch and the stem or trunk of the plant.

Step 2: Fertilize

Step 2: Fertilize

Trees such as Profusion Crabapple Tree grow best if they are fertilized lightly in the spring once frost has passed with a well-balanced, extended-release, fertilizer such as espoma Tree-tone. Fertilize Crabapples again 6 to 8 weeks later to encourage denser foliage or faster growth of young trees. We recommend Bio-Tone fertilizer when planting. Either chemical fertilizers or organic matter can be used successfully with Crabapple Tree.

Step 3: Water

Step 3: Water

Once the tree is planted, it's critical to give it adequate water to help its roots recover and send out new sprouts. Water the tree every 3 days for the first few weeks, then water weekly, aiming for at least 1 inch of water each week. If you plant your tree when weather is warm, it's a good idea to check the soil under the tree every few days to ensure it never becomes completely dry.
