So a few months ago I got a weeping cherry from lowes it was about 5 and a half feet tall at the time and planted it out front of the house in a large planter box. It was doing well up until about a month ago. When I started to notice leaves here and there getting spots on them and then creating small holes to eventually the leaf yellowing and then falling off. I didnt think much about it but then more and more leaves started doing this to the point where the tree is nearly bald. I did some research and found out it was something known as Cherry leaf spot or Shot hole. But I never really found any one good answer for what to do about it to speed up the recovery process. Some mention a fungicide but never really say which, and sometimes I hear about using Neem oil or some copper infused fungicide. Can anyone point me to a specific spray/soil/ect. I should use on it ? and how long does it take to rid the tree of this fungus and see the leaves growing back properly ?

So far the only thing I have done it pick off lots of the really damaged leaves I see each day, and used a fungicide spray I found at the store (Fungicide 3 from Garden Safe). But the spray never really gave proper directions for how often to use the spray. So i have sprayed all over the tree for a few days in a row now.

Any help guys ?
