We've brought a Victoria plum tree and it's been planted in the soil 4 weeks ago. Within a few days the leaves turned yellow and started dropping off. We've given it some fish bone at the time of planting. What shall we do?



Has it been watered enough? It might be that, or just the shock of being planted.

Needs 2 gallons minimum a week right up till autumn/winter, and same again during dry spells from April onwards for its first 2 years. If you didn't give it enough when you first planted, and haven't watered sufficiently since, leave the hose running on a trickle at the base for a couple of hours - even if its raining.
