    Hi, is anyone growing 'Yuki Yama'? Is this an easy to grow variety or finicky? Does it like full sun or shade? Does it like average watering or needs to stay on the drier side? I want to do the right thing for my tree. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    This is one I've been really trying to get my hands on. No luck yet :(

    @SLR2009 how long have you had yours?

    Hey. Thanks a lot. I will. Check them out. Do you order from them often? How's the service?

    I've had great service with them. I've ordered 3 other tree's from them before.

    Sam from Eastfork Nursery told me that this variety is as finicky as Taylor so I want to do the best I can to allow the tree to thrive.

    @SLR2009, very interested to watch this one, if it is as finicky as Taylor then work will be cut out to keep this one alive.
    There are some that are produced that look so pretty in the garden centres in Spring, that you just cannot stop yourself from buying. I have done this more than a few times. Yuki Yama does look very pretty indeed.
    I have lost 3 Taylor's and my daughter has lost 2. So no more.

    Look forward to perhaps an update in 2021.

    Sam from Eastfork Nursery has a lot of experience with this tree so I hope she can post here.

    Yeah I hope I'm wrong about it being finicky.
