Plum Tree Not Fruiting


jedd added on June 20, 2013 | Answered

My Victoria plum has loads of leaves but no fruit. It has fruited well previously, but as it is planted in the lawn, I wonder if lawn feed has affected it. Should I clear the grass from around it, and what feed should I use to put this right?

This article can help with reasons for non-fruiting: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/edible/fruits/plum/plum-trees-not-fruiting.htm

I think it may definitely be the fertilizer from your lawn, which normally contains lots of nitrogen - this would result in lots of lush foliage growth with little to no blooms or fruit. You can usually offset the nitrogen by adding a phosphorus rich fertilizer, or bone meal, to the soil around your tree.
