Pollination Info

Italian Plum Tree Pollination

Italian Plum Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Italian Plum Tree will drastically increase the size of your crop.

Planting & Care

1. Planting: Plant your Plum in well-draining soil and in full to partial sun.

Dig a hole that is twice as wide but just as deep as the root ball. Place your tree, backfill your soil and water to settle the roots. Mulch the surrounding soil to conserve moisture.

2. Watering: You will not likely need to water your tree unless you live in a very dry area with little irrigation. If you’re not sure when to water, check your surrounding soil about 3 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it’s time to water.

3. Fertilizing: During the first few years, you can add balanced fertilizer at the beginning of spring. However, it is not necessary to fertilize your tree once it begins to bear fruit.

4. Pruning: Your tree only requires light pruning in winter to get rid of dead branches. You can also do some additional pruning to lighten the branches or maintain a vase shape, but it is not necessary.

Very pleased

The tree (6-7 foot) was in great shape when it arrived in mid-September, we planted it almost immediately, and it is doing quite well as of mid-October.

Plum Trees in Albuquerque

I was surprised to find people at FastGrowing available at 7:00 pm on a Friday evening to take my order for four Italian Plum Trees. They came a week later by Fedex, two in a long box, two boxes. I have planted them. They look like they are OK, but it is late in the season so Spring will tell. At any rate, I will definitely order an apple and cherry tree from FastGrowing. This company has a lot on the ball. Great job!
