We got our cherry blossom pruned last year by a professional tree surgeon. The final shape looked really well and the guys that did the job took a lot of care selecting the right branches to cut but this spring it didn't flower and some of the branches have dead leaves on them.

Do you think it was the bad winter that prevented it from flowering or should i complain to the tree surgeon who carried out the work?

Thank you in advance for your comments

it is possible that if a lot of branches were removed it could take another season to produce flowering branches.it would be no harm to ring the tree surgeon and explain to him that you got no flowers this year and get his opinion as to why .the dead leaves could be the dry weather in the past few weeks.
