Victoria Plum Tree

Anonymous added on September 5, 2016 | Answered

I planted a Victoria plum 5 months ago and two of the branches have no leaves. I am told that the two leafless branches has been caused by the wind and that I need to wrap hessian around the tree to protect it. Is this correct and what do I do with the two leafless branches?

Check to see if the branches have died off. Bend them and if they snap they have died.
You can also scratch the branches, if still alive, you will see green under the bark.
These links have more information and how to winterize your tree.
