I planted this shrub in our front garden, which is sunny and warm and sheltered. The shrub has been fed with a liquid feed about once a month but last month (June) the leaves started to go brown (even new leaves) and dropping off. What have I done wrong with this please?

Victoria plum tree (patio variety)

Posted: 01/08/2013 at 17:01

I have a victoria plum tree which is a very large pot (it is a patio variety). It flowered very well this year and had a large number of plums in it, but in June, the leaves on about 4 of the branches started to go brown and the plums shrivelled up and dropped off. I have one branch that looks healthy left. What has happened here please?

I have a small victoria plum tree, which is 2 years old, it has a lot of fruit on it, but two of the branches lost all their leaves and the fruit turned yellow and shrivelled. Now the other 3 branches (which also have fruit on them) the leaves are starting to turn yellow and some of the fruit is yellowing and are not going to get any bigger or fill out. What is wrong with my plum tree? The tree is planted in a large pot not the garden.
