    Any advice please for a newbie. Plum tree has lost all leaves and fruit in the middle. Could it be stress from all the heat. Thanks in advance

    Yes, almost certainly.
    Try and give it plenty of water until things improve.
    4-5 bucketfuls a day for a few days then every 2-3 days until we get back to normal (whatever that is these days..)
    You may find that one or 2 branches have had die-back which you can prune off next summer

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
