Over vigorous plum tree
I have a 4/5 year old victoria plum tree, which hasn't yet given any fruit and will not do so this year. But instead each year it puts on a lot of growth, masses of shoots in all directions and it is already over 10' tall.
I don't know what rootstock it is grafted to but the union is plainly visible.
It grows in a grassed area with a bare circle cut around the trunk.
Please how and when do I prune the over-crowded branches and shoots and is there a way to make the tree less vigorous and more fruitful??
