Q.Flowering Cherry Tree Is Dropping Leaves

Zone East Sussex | Anonymous added on August 10, 2021 | Answered

This flowering cherry tree is planted in a walled garden in Hove, Sussex. It is at least 30 years old and flowers regularly each year. In the last few weeks it has shed almost all it leaves which it wouldn’t normally do until autumn. There doesn’t seem to be any sign of disease or insect damage and has been regularly watered. Is this just due to the dry weather this year and is there anything that can be done to rescue the tree? Thanks.
