Sweet Cherry Tree Problems
I have a question for this format about my Sweet Cherry
Trees. Here's the problem I have 4 sweet cherry Trees here in Northern Indiana. I have a Lapins, a Windsor, and 2 Rainers. Last year was the first year that I actually picked enough cherries to eat. The previous year I had a ton of blooms, but lost all of them due to a frost, that was in 2012, and we all knew the story there if you lived in Michigan or Indiana-a fast warm up then a hard freeze. This year I was looking for a bigger crop, but again we know how hard the winter was-hard on plants, trees, and humans alike. Seems like my sour cherry trees and the apple trees fared fine though. The problems are with my sweet cherry trees, it seems so far no blooms, and I have lost foliage big time especially on the Lapins. I will attach pictures the smallest tree is the Lapins and is the worst hit, one of the Rainers is also bad with the other fairing a little better, and the Windsor is the next biggest and doesn't seem quite as bad either. One of the Rainer's it looks as though some of the leaves are rolling up and possibly that is what caused the loss of leaves on the other. Any ideas do they need to be fertilized or are they lacking something, is it pests, diseases, or just the rough winter? I want to do whatever I can to help them out. Thanks in advance for any help or ideas.
