Q.Victoria Plum Tree With A Problem.
This is a four year old tree. It has produced tiny plums in the past, but none have ever matured; they drop off. We had it pruned for the first time in February; it blossomed and looked beautiful and we hoped that we might actually have fruit this year. However, it is looking unwell now. There are no visible spots or marks on its leaves but they are limp and droopy. We placed a manure-type compost around the bottom of the trunk in March. Do you have any idea what could be wrong with it?
