Cherry Tree

Hello, I planted a Tesco (not self-fertile) White Heart cherry tree last year & it has over a dozen flowers & there are at least another 2 dozen buds.  Should I allow it to fruit this year or should I remove all the flowers & buds or maybe only leave a few flowers & buds?  There is a cherry tree in my neighbours garden so I presume it will help mine to bear fruit but I'm not sure if it should in the first year.

    It doesn't really matter, bearing a few fruit won't do it any harm. You may find that the tree drops the fruit on its own in the next few weeks.
