Plum Tree -- Beginner Advice...
I planted a plum tree (South facing) last year from a Nursery that had lost its tree tag in a storm. They said it is a self-pollinating plum variety. This year the tree appears healthy... slight battle with aphids but appears resolved. The tree flowered with hot pink flowers and produced tiny fruit bulbs but none developed any larger than a marble and continue to hang on the tree. I do not expect any fruit yet as the tree is still establishing but am concerned with the possibility of it not being a self-pollinator.
All the branches continue to grow upward as well. Not sure if I should try to train them more horizontally. I have many young fruit trees in the yard but am just starting the learning curve. Have read many websites and posts but still do not know that the best approach is with this tree.
All input is greatly appreciated.
