You should be able to move it after the leaves have all fallen in the autumn.

 Take as big a rootball as you can manage.

Only prune when the weather is hot and dry, so late May-August. In damp, cool weather, plums are very susceptible to fungal diseases which can kill them.

if its only two year old it shouldn't need pruning.

When they're dormant is best, Eric. Late winter, early spring, or when the soil is diggable.
