Plum tree - Lots of leaves, no flowers
We have a plum tree that was loaded with fruits when we moved in to this house in July, but not very good b/c they hadn't been watered consistently for several years (property used to be vacant.) The fruits were dry and flavorless, very small, even the birds didn't care much for them.
We began watering consistently with a good soak every week and a half, starting in July. All of the fruit dropped within a 3 day period. I know the tree most likely went into shock from the new watering regime and I can't do much about that now. I pruned back the tree (cross branches, suckers, rubbing branches, the basics) in the beginning of January and followed up with fertilizer in February, the recommended amount from my area (16-8-4) all organic.
In late February, I saw about 4 open flowers at the very tip top of the tree, but nowhere else. The plum tree is now sprouting leaves and no more flower buds :( Does that mean I won't get any fruit this season?? Did I do more harm than good? Any advice would be great!
