How to take care of Plum Tree Opal

Select a planting site for your tree that receives full to partial sunlight and has loose, well-draining soil. Dig a planting hole that’s twice the width of the tree’s root-ball and slightly shallower.

Loosen the soil in the sides and bottom of the planting hole. Remove the root-ball from the disposal pot. Gently loosen the roots. Set the root-ball into the planting hole and keep the top of the root-ball about 1 inch above the ground level.

Backfill the planting hole about halfway, then water the soil generously to eliminate any air pockets around the roots. Backfill the planting hole the rest of the way and water again. New trees need lots of water until they are established.

An area of about 1.2 meters around the tree should be kept free of weeds or lawn grass during the early stages of growth. Organic mulches can also be used to suppress weed growth around the tree. Apply fertilizer in the spring until fruit sets and after harvest annually.

Check trees for common disease and fruit pests in the spring and fall. The tree should be pruned annually in late winter while they are in their dormant state. Plum trees often take 4-5 years to produce fruit for the first time.
