Care of Chinese Apricot Tree

I have a Chinese Apricot tree and I am looking for anyone who may be familiar with the care of this type of tree. :?: The tree is in it's 5th year.

I planted my Armeniaca mume as a first year whip last fall, so you have at least 4 year's experience ahead of me. :wink:

It gamely put forth some dainty flowers this spring

And even bore some fruit. I kept two after the June drop, then
cut the leader to about 30 inches. I plan to prune it to a "bush" form as it is in a small area.
