Zone Middlesex UB4 | Anonymous added on July 7, 2021 | Answered

My container grown “Stella” cherry tree (3rd season) had beautiful flowers in the spring and went on to produce a good crop of fruit.This has been harvested but the leaves are now dropping quite rapidly. Only 1 or 2 are yellow the rest look quite normal, I can’t see any sign of aphids, mildew or the like so I don’t know whether to spray and if so, what with? Sorry don’t know how to send photo?
