Broken plum tree
Hi, I woke up this morning to a very sad sight; my lovely plum tree has completely broken off in the rain last night, leaving just the forked trunk, no branches now at all. It had produced a huge glut of fruit this year, like bunches of grapes, so I have been thinning it out over the last month, and cutting off some of the branches, but not enough to save it, it seems. We have a small garden and inherited this tree when we bought the house, and I loved it! Is there any chance it will recover? Should I neaten up the breaks and paint the wounds? Or should we just plant another and say goodbye to our faithful tree?
Also, any recipe ideas for all the green plums?
