Answer: Flowering cherries tend to take several years to become well rooted and established after planting and the flowering increases annually after that, so this may just be a case of the tree needing more maturity. It sounds as though your tree is growing well and has begun to bloom so there is probably nothing lacking. But to assure that soil conditions are adequate, you might try a topdressing of good quality compost in the spring and use an organic mulch over the root area to reduce competition from lawn grasses or other plants. You could also apply a general purpose granular fertilizer or a slow release fertilizer in the spring per the label directions. Enjoy your cherry tree!
