How do I care for an Ornamental plum tree?


Answer by  WittleKitty (19)

The plum tree prefers sun, but will survive in a partially shaded spot as well. In the first two years of life, the tree needs around 16 gallons of water every week. In subsequent years, give it the same amount of water every two weeks. You may need to prune occasionally to keep branches from crowding, remove weeds as well.

Ornamental plum trees can grow in more acidic soils. Watch the pH levels and prune in the late spring instead of the fall. Make sure to water during hot spells and when the temperature is consistently above 85 degrees. Use soil rendering products around the root system and cultivate gently.

Prune branches in springtime-as opposed to fall. They like full sunlight and remember to water regularly; give an extra drink or two in hot weather. It is somewhat drought resistant.

This tree likes the sunshine, and needs to be watered on a regular basis. During hot weather, provide a little extra water. This tree needs to be pruned in the spring and not in the fall like other trees.

Ornamental plum trees do not require much water but thrive best in moderate climates. Keep from direct sunlight whenever possible and water either early morning or after dusk to keep delicate flowers from scorching.

Test the pH levels of the soil. Use soil-rendering products to break up excessive clay in the soil. Water periodically through hot and dry months. Prune branches of larger trees.

You should get a book on it, or go to a nursery and ask them how you care for one. Or look online for the answer. But I think going to a nursery would be your best bet.
