    Unhappy I planted my cherry tree yesterday now it looks sick.

    I recived my Cherry tree yesterday before potting it looked very nice and healthy but I am not a expert. I potted it in a 15'' pot I used John innes
    Compost recommended by the garden centre.

    I checked the cherry tree today it looks really bad & the leaves have started wilting with brown and black bits on the leaves. The plant pot has lots of holes in the bottoms to help with drainage.

    I forgot to say I put incredicrop fertiliser in the soil
    Just like the packet said.

    Please help I don't want to loose this plant as I only recived it yesterday.

    Hi & welcome!
    Did you leave it out in the wind or heavy rain yesterday?

    I am from the southeast of England we did not have a lot wind yesterday just strong winds.

    The plant was left in the garden after planting.
    I hope I have not killed my plant already

    Was it in a pot or bare root when you received it?

    I think it may be stressed from being repotted, then left out in the weather. Put it somewhere sheltered and give it a few days to recover.

    I am new to this site & new to growing fruit tress. Thank you for your help.
    I really hope it is just stressed and will come back.

    The plant come in a small plant pot so i replanted in a 15'' pot.
    I have placed something around the pot to shield from where the wind is coming
    & will take this off in the morning.

    I also planted a orange tree and so far this one looks fine. but it is a lot shorter
    so less affected by the wind. We are meant to be having a really nice week
    with not much rain & lots of sun. I really hope the sun will help the plant come back to life.

    Take extra care of the orange tree as it won't like being outdoors in this weather. Its probably come straight from a greenhouse somewhere warm!
