Planting & Care
2. Watering: Provide adequate watering for the first couple of seasons to be sure the tree establishes itself properly. It will need to be watered weekly, or more often in the warmer season. If you’re not sure when to water, simply check your soil about 2 or 3 inches down. If the soil is dry here, it’s time to water.
3. Pruning: KV Plums have a naturally rounded shape that will not require regular pruning, but an annual trimming of the branch tips during the winter season encourages best growth.
4. Fertilizing: Feed your tree in the spring with a general, all-purpose fertilizer, at some point before the new growth starts.
