Talkback: How to prune a plum tree

Posted: 10/11/2013 at 11:58

I planted a victoria plum. Pruned as best I could according to any advice I could find. I left three strong central stems with plenty of air between them and reduced them by a third.  Then all other stems reduced by a half.  No flowers to speak of for the first 2 years. No fruit for the first three years and then last year I had loads, although lost about 1/3 of fruit with brown rot.  Will keep perservering as the fruit was delicious.  Not sure whether to prune this year though.  If i leave it alone will it slow down its growth? The tree is about as big as i would like it to get now.

Any ideas?
