When should I pick Victoria plums? I have a plum tree with a few plums that are fully coloured red and soft to squeeze. Is it to early to pick them?

It's been in the pot for maybe 3 years, I haven't replaced the soil but I have used a general plant feed in water.

Hi Everyone,

I planted a climbing plant in a pot last quite a long time ago and I've forgot what type it was and was wondering if someone could identify it.

Also what can I do to improve the plant? The leaves don't look that great and it isn't really climbing much higher. I would like it to reach at least 6-8 feet tall but it has stopped at 4 feet tall.

3 looks like Damsons, I have two Damson trees and the fruit looks identical to yours. Damsons make a great jam

Thanks for the info, I will thin it out and see what it looks like. My issue is it blocks the light towards the end of the day.

In the picture is my garden bamboo which I want to trim from both the sides and the top. Can a bamboo be shortened without killing it. Will the leafy tops appear at the new height?

Thanks for the replies, I will discard the ones with the spots in the council bin and pick the rest. Just to confirm they are ripe when all purple, I don't have to wait for them to be purple and soft as an example? and the sappy ones are fine to use?

Hi Everyone,

I have two Damson trees in my garden and I'm wondering when I can pick the fruit? I want to make Damson Jam or Damson Gin.

The two trees although very close to each other seem to be at different stages with the fruit. I'm not sure if I should just pick everything off both trees or wait until all the fruit is purple?

Also some fruit appears to have a fungus or mould forming, should I discard this fruit or is it still fine to make Damson Gin with?

ow and what is the sap like substance on the Damsons is that harmless or should I avoid using that fruit?

Picture below :)
