Montmorency Cherry Leaves Yellowing Post Prune
I received this one with about 5 top branches a few weeks ago. I potted it up before I read about 5-1-1 in a 1/3rds mix of coir fibers, my clay soil and miracle grow potting soil. The tree had almost no roots. It was about 5' tall and doing well, leafing out. Three days ago, I pruned all my new trees including this one down to 30" like they say. Then it rained for two days. Today, all of the top leaves are yellowing just on the Montmorency Cherry. Thinking maybe it was the heavy clay soil, we repotted the tree in the much lighter mix 5-1-1. I don't know if pruning shock could cause this or too much water in the heavy soil. Does anyone know?
