Lapins Cherry Tree or Twig from Bay Laurel Nursery?
This is my Lapins Cherry from Bay Laurel Nursery. It's been with me about 6 weeks. I ordered 3 cherry trees. The other two were nicely branched and heavily pruned (minnie royal and royal lee). All 3 have a nice root system but this one is just a stick, no branching at the top. I'm wondering why they pruned it back so hard? It's starting to put out a lot of nice leaf buds, but not the branching I was hoping for. Will these produce branches? (sorry for the goofy questions). It looks more like a shrub with new growth all along the primary. I've heard of pruning to force branching, but there is zero sign of that. In fact, the tip seems to have died back. Not sure if you can see that. Should I contact the company? Thanks so much for your input.
