My dwarf Ruby red cherry tree has lost all its leaves,they all burned up,and the buds are burnt,what should I do,its in a container?

I’m not familiar with this cherry variety since it isn’t hardy here in zone 5…it is only hardy to zone 6.  From what little info available on this, I assume you mail ordered it.  It sounds like you either drowned it by over watering it or it contracted a fungal disease which cherries are prone to.  You’ll need to find a place for it to spend the winter where temperatures are below 50° for the winter.  When it shows signs of life in the spring (which it hopefully will do) you’ll need to start a regular spraying schedule with a good fruit tree spray following the directions on the label of course.
