Burgundy Plum Tree Information and Care

Plant Burgundy plum trees in the Full Sun or areas with partial shade. As a relatively small tree, space as little as 10 feet apart. Provide more space for trees intended to grow wide or for more space between trees.

As a deciduous plant, do not provide supplemental water in the Winter while dormant. Start watering regularly in the Spring once the tree leafs out. Most newly planted trees need water once per week, then increase the frequency to twice per week once the whether becomes hot in the summer. Fall bring lower temperatures, thus a reduction in water frequency. Reduce frequency until water is discontinued in the winter.

Fertilize plum trees with organic fruit tree fertilizers such as bone meal, blood meal, humus, and manure. Provide manure and higher phosphorus and potassium fertilizers like humic and bone meal in the winter before spring growth along with manure. Apply higher nitrogen fertilizers like blood meal and other granular fertilizers in the Spring and Summer growing season.

Prune to maintain size and structure in the winter while the tree is dormant. Thin trees of dry branches, too many fruits, and suckers in the Summer.

Use organic horticultural oils in the Winter to prevent soft bodied insects during the growing season. Use repellants and cover your trees with netting when fruit ripens to keep birds and rodents from your harvest.
