    I would not expect it to flower the first year. if it had set fruit it would weaken the plant.  Unless it is a Victoria, it will need a pollinator.

    You need  another variety of plum that flowers at the same time.

    Some other plums are also self-fertile, not just Victoria plums.

    it won't produce any more blossom this year - spring is over.
