Hello 👋🏻 please can anyone let me know if this leaking sap stuff is a problem? Is it a pest or caused by a pest? Most of the (not many in total) plums on the tree are like this. I cut one open and there was brown plum flesh going away from the ‘leak’ but couldn’t see anything living! #plums #plum-victoria #plum-problem #pest-id
Yes it’s lovely Altho it hadn’t had much fruit on and didn’t flower so I wasn’t sure what I would get from it! I must admit I didn’t plant it, it was here when I moved in, and it in an awkward place so I am considering sacrificing it 😱
@kamaki maybe, it is currently blocking what could be a lovely rockery behind. There are two plum trees, the other didn’t fruit at all, not sure if there needs to be two to produce fruit. I’m weighing up my options anyway. Altho it has helped itself by producing such delicious fruit!
This is a plum tree in my garden, I only got ONE Plum last year.I don’t know the variety, the plum last year was purpley red! I don’t know if it needs pollinating. I don’t know how or when to prune.The branches seem to weigh themselves down&it isn’t very tree shaped... also, photos to follow but there are eggs under some leaves&i have so far spotted about 5 mini plums. Can anyone advise what I should do &how to maintain etc? Oh and no blossom! TIA! #plum #pruning #advice #tree #helpplease 😱
@bamels thank you! It isn’t a massive tree but I don’t know how old as it was here when I moved in. I think I’ll have to try and get rid of the pests somehow and see what fruit I get this year ☺️ it’s quite exciting seeing all the things changing in the garden
Think I crossed over with your comment- thanks I’ll have a look for something similar. I’ve just spent 5 mins watching a load of sparrows in the tree and they seem to like something, not sure if it isn’t the aphids so maybe they’ll sort them out :) hopefully not the plums 😂 @bamels
