At the start of the year I planted a Victoria plum, purchased from my local trade garden centre. Now 4 and a bit months on the customer has written saying that they believe there is a problem with the tree. They are not seeking any recourse action, just after my opinion of what is the problem.
To tell you the truth, tree diseases are not my strong point and after looking at various sites on the net, I am still at a loss. So why not try the good and varied knowledge on this forum. I have attached a couple of photos that were sent to me. The customer is based on the coast if Fife, ground condition are fine, well drained soil, garden is south west facing. Climate this year has been poor, like most, a roasting April and May, with a very wet June and July with mid temperatures. The plant itself, I am told has three plums on it.
