I sent for a plum and cherry tree back in May from a well known on-line and postal supply company. They were bare of buds on arrival and avvording to the info had been kept in cold storage, was assured that within 2 or 3 weeks of planting they would come to life. They didn't, both died despite me following the planting instructions. They were replaced, the cherry tree died again and was replaced again, this time with a larger specimen in full leaf, it was the 2nd week oy July by this time. The plum tree, about 4 feet high only sprouted a few leaves here and there. That has remained the same (hopefully the picture has come through ok) It was taken a couple of days ago. Will this tree sprout more leaves come next spring? At the moment the leaves show no signs of turming brown. Is this normal? I would welcome some advice.
