It sounds like there may have been a lack of pollination take place at the time of flowering. Most plum trees are not self-fertile and require another nearby plum to help pollinate the tree.
Do you have another nearby tree in your garden or nearby? this will greatly improve pollination. Each variety of plum will have an ideal pollinator tree or trees for that variety.
Ensure the soil is rich and full of organic matter and the tree receives enough water over the flowering stage. Ensure there is lots of bee attracting ornamental flowers to encourage pollinators to your garden.
