Need help with bush cherry.
I planted two bush cherries this spring - Carmine Jewel and Crimson Passion. They are planted on a slightly raised bed on a hill. Sun comes there around 10-11 AM and stays till end of the day, which is around 6 PM. They planted 5 feet apart in the location that never had fruit trees before. No weeds around. On the north side there is a big shed covering them from the north wind.
They started very well, and grew up twice since April when I planted them.
Yesterday, I found few yellow leaves on both of them. The leaves also have some spots, so I assume it is leaf spot and I need to spray them. But also the leaf end dies first, like it is burned. Anyway, I am going to spray them tomorrow with Immunox, but what else I can I do to support their health? They generally do not look same happy as at the very beginning. I keep soil moist. Soil is a former vegetable garden bed soil. Should I apply some fertilizer? I did applied lime before planting, but may be I need to check the soil acidity again? If needed, is it OK to apply lime now? What else could be done here? Pictures bellow
