If you have been given this tree I imagine it is a young one.
I would not take cuttings from a tree which had not borne it's first fruit.
It would be unwise to try to take cuttings, only a few plums root from cuttings, most are grafted on a rootstock, i.e. common plum, Myrolalan etc.
Best advice would be to buy another tree from the same source.

BTW, that's a beautiful Geranium photo you posted! Do you know the name of it?
