Does it make sense to search for a big plum tree to buy?
I want to plant plum tree in space where was old pear tree, but don't want to have there tiny tree because i want some shade to the area.
Of course it sense:) Shade trees hold that wonderful sentimental value you know? I don't know any varieties of plum that grow large,but wouldn't any tree grow large except for dwarf varieties?
The area where old tree was growing is very sunny and it provided some shade for a bench standing to the east from the tree. I want to buy dwarf variety, but not one or two years "baby" that will not give any shade. When I was saying "big", I meant 3-6 years old tree.
Hmm... I would check local nurseries during the growing season. My local nurseries don't carry trees that old. Maybe buying online or visiting a tree nursery would help. Keep searching searching briergardener:)
