We have a Luisa Plum Tree that we bought with us when we shifted to Greerton. We have lost a lot of fruit with the high winds we have had recently. The fruit still seems to be dropping even as it is getting bigger. Is the tree lacking in something? We keep it well watered and has good drainage

Hi Lesley, . If you have shifted this year, then I would suggest the shift, wind and general stress is causing the fruit drop. The tree will only carry as much as is able to maintain and drop off the weaker ones. Ensure it only gets deep watering when really required (normally not until a bit later, but since it has been transplanted and it is in a well draining position, I don’t think it would be getting too much water. To reduce the stress, spray on a liquid organic fertiliser (seaweed, compost tea, fish fertiliser) You could also do a diluted spray with Enspray oil (don’t spray during hot sun) this will help with preventing evaporation during stress times (high winds). Thanks the Palmers Team
