EASY TO GROW, DELICIOUS TO EAT!
Plums are one of the best stonefruit types to grow in a home garden, as prolific crops of very good quality fruit can be produced with very little work. Only a few diseases affect plum trees, so a very basic organic spray programme will keep the tree healthy and productive. Make sure you only prune in summer months to prevent fungal disease getting into your tree. Mid to late varieties do best in southland areas. Expect fruit once tree is 4-6 years old.
