Why is my cherry tree not budding?

United Kingdom Gb

Please help, I have a cherry tree that is approx 10 years old and I have never had any problems with it until now. It has always been very full with buds and blossom and has always had lots of fruit but last year it had quite alot less fruit than usual. This year however, it's hardly got any buds I'd say 10% if that and would normally be blossoming by now. Can you tell me why this might be and what I can do to help it please.



the really hard frosts might have been the cause of bud loss. prune out any dead branches and give it a mulch. then its a case of wait and see.
welcome to GoY by the way.
