japanese dwarf plum

Prunus Salicina ‘Methley’

Japanese dwarf plum tree
This Japanese plum dwarf cultivar is a small, upright fruit bearing tree growing to about 8 to 10 feet at maturity. The white spring blossoms are scented. These are followed by a heavy crop of medium sized purple red plums with excellent flavor.
These trees are self-pollinating, however they can be pollinated with other varieties.

Height: 8′ – 10′

Width: 8′ -130′

Exposure: Full sun.

Watering and soil: Moist, well drained rich soil. Apply an even layer of mulch over the soil avoiding it piling up the trunk in ‘volcano’ fashion.

Fertilizer: Use a well balanced fertilizer or slow release formula.

Pruning: It is especially important to train plum trees when young. With careful pruning at their early stages, they will require only light maintenance pruning as they mature.

When the tree is about two years old reduce to three or four well-spaced branches to maintain an open sun filled structure. Good air circulation around the branches is particularly important.
