Trim off the spent flower head. Leave it until end of September when the leaves will fall off. You can then tip them out, prune the stem off.

Is this a damson tree?

Have you got an in focus picture of the fruit (opposite end to the stalk)?

If it is smooth it is probably a damson. Cut it in half and it will have a stone similar to a plum stone. If it has a star shaped structure it is a crab apple. Cut in half it will look like the inside of an apple with pips.

I soak mine in rain water with some added baby bio for orchids, once a week, for half an hour then I let it drain. Mine sit in a North facing window so do not get direct sunshine.

Yes. Just use a soil  or loam based compost.

I would delay digging it  out a couple of months if you want it to live. Pot into a big pot. Sell when it looks like it has survived the winter and starting into growth.
