Plums are very hardy but blossom early, making the crop susceptible to late Spring frosts. They should be planted no more than 10-15 feet apart in an area with good air drainage (high spots where cold air flows away from the tree) and good soil drainage. Plum trees are attractive, require little pruning, and grow to a height of 12-15 ft.
IMPORTANT: A grafted plum tree is not able to pollinate another tree of the same name unless it is marked “self-fertile.” To ensure that your grafted plum tree will give fruit, you should choose two different varieties from within the same pollen group, designated by the letter “A” or “B”.
