have watered garded even more since last advice

On plant cherry tree



As long as you're keeping it watered now, it might survive. You could try giving it a feed mixed in with the water. It's wait and see if it recovers, I'm afraid, but you won't get any more flowers this year. As long as the leaves stay and grow, it'll survive.
