No plums😥

I had have a jubilee plum tree, this year is it’s second year.not having a lot of luck, last year a lot of it’s leaves were eaten and birds had the feW plums.This year it blossomed well, had tiny seed sized plums after but now nothing, they’ve all gone.As far as I can tell the tree looks healthy.Any help would be greatly received.

    I wonder if it is what they call  the June and also we have had very strong winds which hasn't helped,my Victoria plum tree was laden down with plums but quite a lot ended up on the ground,also with it been a young tree the dry spring won't have helped. I for got to mention that my tree got attacked by aphid which made it look sick it has recovered thank goodness.

    Most plums on St Julian A or Pixy rootstock will only begin fruiting when between 3 and 6 years old. Let the trees establish well before trying to get a crop and you will be rewarded with a stronger tree and better crops in the future.
