Can any body help please, i have boughts some fruit trees in a tub, victoria plum, cherry and an apple tree, only the cherry tree has bourne little fruit, but the problem is that it is riddled with blac fly and the tree is now starting to shed it leaves, is this normal.



No its not normal - spray for the blackfly, plant the cherry in the ground if you can - sounds like its not getting enough water and probably needs more root room - they tend to spread their roots shallowly outwards rather than down, and in a pot, unless its very large, they can't do that.
