New Plum Tree questions
I planted a few fruit trees over the last week. I know, I know, not the best time to do it with the heatwave but I couldn't wait.
I'll be posting several questions about them because I'm new to this. The first questions I have are about one of the two plum trees.
In the attached picture, I'm showing the whole tree, then a bit enlarged and finally zoomed in on a "glob" of some clear sappy stuff. What is that? Should I be worried about it? If so, is there something I can do to fix or prevent it from getting worse?
The 2nd question is whether or not I should prune the little "sucker branch" growing from the bottom.
Thanks for any help.
