Why Fast-Growing-Trees.com is Better
Your tree has been continuously pruned to encourage more branching. More branching means more fruit, earlier production, and a healthier tree. This process takes us up to a year longer than our competitors, but you'll find that it makes a huge difference.
Prior to shipping, your trees receive a final pruning at no additional cost.
So now, you can easily grow your own Santa Rosa plums without chemicals for tastier, healthier, and fresher fruit.
Santa Rosa Plum Tree Pollination
Santa Rosa Plum Trees are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional pollinator will drastically increase the size of your crop. Below are the most effective pollinators we have chosen for your area...
Planting & Care
1. Planting: Prepare your hole by digging it three times as wide as the root ball and just as deeply. Gently comb the root ball freeing up any compacted roots and place the tree. Backfill the hole partially, pressing down gently as you go along and water to settle the soil. Once the hole has been completely filled, add a layer of organic mulch around the tree to help conserve water. Do not let the mulch touch the trunk of the tree as this can promote rot and fungus.
2. Watering: If the edges of the tree’s leaves appear to be turning brown or wilting, then the tree is not receiving enough water. The bark at the base of the trunk will change from a light brown to dark brown (or black-ish) color if it’s receiving too much water.
Generally, you'll want to keep the soil moist around your tree about 3 inches down.
3. Fertilizing: Young trees that are three years or younger will benefit from about a half cup of balanced 10-10-10 fertilizer formula applied once in around mid-April and again in early June. More established plum trees will require one annual application of the same balanced formula mid-April.

Customer Reviews & Photos
Like my new Santa Rosa Plum Tree, it was a gift for my daughter, she loves plums and likes them before they get fully ripe. My tree we have had for years is getting old so I wanted her to have one of her own and she insisted on planting it here on the farm. We are proud of it. Thanks
