I ventured out into the garden when the snow stopped for a short while, the plum blossoms looked amazing with the melting snow and ice.
Along with peaches and nectarines, plums are the defining fruit of the summer season. In good soil plum trees will bear fruit in 3-5 years from planting out. If you don’t have room to plant two trees that will pollenize each other, then it is best to plant a self fertile cultivar. Spring blooms after a bit of spring snow. 18 Sept 2010 New Zealand.
