I have a 3 year old Victoria Plum dwart patio tree in a large pot on my patio, it is producing fruit, but some look normal and others look strange shaped - is there a reason for this, and do i need to thin out the fruit that is appearing?

Thank you for your help - Tony

Those are not going to make successful fruit - not sure what's gone wrong there - possibly underwatering?

Or .... what sort of compost is it in and what feeding regime have you followed?

Just did a bit of Googling - seems that this might be the problem http://apps.rhs.org.uk/advicesearch/Profile.aspx?pid=199
