Looking after your Plum Tree

These strong Victoria plum trees are grown on semi- dwarf rootstock so are perfect for a smaller space or even for a pot on a patio. They will eventually grow to around 3 or 4 metres tall and we expect them to fruit next year.

Plum trees are hardy in this country and although they are fine in light frosts they are best protected from severe and late frosts when young. They are currently in quite a small pot for their size so are ready to either be potted up into a larger pot or planted straight out in the ground. Choose a sunny position where the fruits can ripen and protect from strong winds and deer if they are a problem in your area.

Whilst in a small pot, your plum tree will need regular watering, try not to let the soil dry out at any time. They do not need a rich soil but a top dressing of manure or seaweed will give any tree a hand to settle in to a new position. In a pot, topsoil from the garden on general purpose compost will be fine.

Plum trees are best pruned in early Autumn to prepare them for fruiting the following year. Remove any side shoots that are growing upwards at the trunk (ie. Those that are at less than a 45 degree angle from the trunk) and prune back any side shoots that are branching out nicely (at a greater than 45 degree angle) to about six inches in length. Always use sharp seceteurs when pruning and make clean diagonal cuts. Flowers and eventually fruit will set on these ‘old’ branches next year.

Problem Solving: Plum trees are very tough trees that require little maintenance. Watch out for pests, including caterpillars and treat any problems early.

Plum trees are deciduous so don’t worry when they lose their leaves in the winter months.

Wilting or brown leaves - are the result of underwatering, give your plant a good soak and it will start to recover.
