How to take care of Standard Plum Opal

Plant your tree in moist but well-drained soil in a sunny sheltered location. Water in thoroughly after planting! Keep the area around the base of the tree free from weeds, as they will compete for nutrients.

Stake trees grown in open exposed areas. Once established, thin fruit if the crop is very heavy and Opal will become a biennial fruit producer. Remove any very small or misshapen fruit. Check regularly for signs of disease.

Remove any of the infected shoots, leaves and branches to allow light and air into the tree. Remove any fallen leaves and fruit from around the base of the tree regularly to prevent disease. Once established, each April apply a thick layer of well-rotted manure or compost around the base of the tree.

Pruning is best carried out in summer to reduce the risk of solver leaf disease. Plum trees often take 4-5 years to produce fruit for the first time.

Everything I ordered arrived, well packaged - the delicate honeysuckle was looking none the worse for wear. I cannot comment on how or if they will grow yet. I shall do my part and hope for the best.
