Mirabelle de Nancy plum
I have a had a Mirabelle de Nancy plum tree in my garden for at least 3 years but so far no fruit. It is growing and healthy with long thin branches which point upwards. They each have lots of little 'spurs'? On them. It is fairly close to another small plum tree, possibly Victoria, which fruits abundantly. This week I decided to be reckless and snipped off the top 25% of a couple of the branches and tied them horizontally to see if it will encourage fruiting...of course this could be its death knell but I thought what have I got to lose! Any thoughts anyone?
