Browning around leaf edges of cherry

Cherry (including sour)    Nottinghamshire , UK

I bought my 81 yr old mum a "Prunus Cerasus Meikers" for mother's day this year... it has developed a brown edge around some of the leaves and I hoped you could help me find the problem. I am no gardener but she is devoted to hers. I have taken a couple of pictures . I planted it when I bought it and as I did so I was instructed (by her) to mix a handful of Growmore and one of Fish, Bone and Blood into the soil with it.

Please help.

I suspect the leaf drying is the result of a bit of transplant shock. I am glad that you included the second picture because if you focus on the new leaves, they look quite good which suggests the plant is adapting well to its new environment.

It is more of a cosmetic issue than a plant health issue. They are still contributing to the growth of the plant, but you can remove some or all of them to make the plant look better.
