Weeping Cherry Tree Budding But Not Blooming For Weeks

Question From: MICHIGAN
Q: What has happened to the weeping cherry tree? It is not blooming, you can see buds for weeks, but nothing is happening. Is it dead? Thank you.

A: I don't know Marlene, I don't have a crystal ball. The season got a slow start so I suggest you wrap yourself up tight and be patient. That's what I do when Mother Nature plays games. Just be sure to keep your baby watered. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
