|Cherry trees flower in late winter or early spring so you won't see any flowers for the rest of this growing season. It should get 6-8 hours of direct sunshine and it should be watered once or twice a week. Too much water, or soil that remains too wet can actually suffocate the roots. Try cutting back on your watering and with any luck your tree will recover. Hope so!
