My three year old Victoria plum tree produced three fruits this year. The leaves have been curled, grey/white.
i love plums what can I do. the tree stands in a garden which gets full summer sun on the west side after 4.00 in high summer is in the shade of a taller hedge.



I hope I am wrong but can you do a google on 'Silver leaf disease' and read about it and compare it with the symptoms on your tree!

Your lack of fruit might be just down to poor pollination at flowering time.

When the tree was in flower the weather might have been rather cool, causing a lack of pollinators!

Once you have read up on SLD get back to us with your thoughts, then we can take it from there!

I agree with teegee about pollination, I have yet to meet anyone who,s plum trees have had more than a few plums this year, let hope next year is better

And the leaf problem is as likely to be Mildew as anything more nasty.
