Plant it in slightly acidic, well-drained soil. Use pine bark mulch or pine straw spread over the root system to a depth of three inches.
Provide a medium amount of water on a regular basis. This is especially important for young trees in their first season. You'll also want to water your tree well each year as you head into winter.
Use the Finger Test to determine if your plant needs water. Stick your finger into the soil near your new tree. If the soil is moist, skip watering that day. If it is getting dry, it's time to water.
Prune them to shape after flowering. Decide what you want to keep first, then remove crossed branches and branches heading into the interior of the canopy.
