Plum Tree

plumbob added on August 2, 2015 | Answered

I have plum tree that I bought early this year. It looked dead and I planted it in April but it didn't bud. However, recently it has produced about 20 shoots from just below soil level. What should I do with it?

Have you conducted a scratch test on the tree

If the scratch test does not show 'green' then if this is not a grafted tree then the growth from the base would be considered desirable growth that you could leave and encourage to become the new trunk.
