Answer: dwarf cherry

Gentile Luciano,
I think you shouldn't worry, because from what you say the plant is healthy and lush, as it has produced a nice vigorous foliage; it may be that the cherry tree has been placed in a dimly lit area, but you should really have put it in the fullest shade so that it does not produce any flowers for this reason. It is more likely that your plant is still good: flowering and fruiting are functions of reproduction for the plant, which engage many of the forces of the plants, we say that they are like extra commitments, in addition to simply vegetating; for this reason some plants need to be mature before starting to reproduce, ie they must have developed a good crown and a good root system. For the cherry trees, some people begin to bloom only after they have reached the age of 5-7, but it depends very much on the varieties: some take a few more years. In any case, 3-4 year-old specimens usually begin to produce some flowers, which however often fall off before reaching fruit.
From what you say your plant has been in your orchard for a short time, so you shouldn't be surprised that it hasn't been completely set yet.
Clear that the more a plant is healthy and well cultivated, the more it will flourish; so if you want so many fruits in the coming years remember that the cherries like to be placed in full sun, or at least in an area where they receive a few hours of direct sunlight; at the end of winter and beginning of autumn, provide manure or slow release granular fertilizer; the cherry trees do not like pruning, and often suffer when they are pruned, so you avoid making cuts, unless you remove the branches ruined by the weather. If you grow your plant in a pot, I remembered that it will need watering, from March to September, especially on the hottest days of summer, when possible you should move the pot in a semi-shaded area, but with a few hours of sunshine anyway direct every day. I warn you that potted plants tend to suffer more than those placed in the ground, both for cultivation errors, for pests, and for problems related to weather or climate; so if an adult cherry tree in the open ground can give us very little effort, once an adult, the same cannot be said of a dwarf cherry adult grown in pots, which will always be grown in the best possible way.
