Hi

We bought a grafted greengage tree a couple of years ago at Plimerton Palmers. Now the bottom part (the other type of plum) grows fast and has some fruits on it, but the top part (grafted green gage) doesn’t grow well and some small branches are dying. Does it mean the nutrition can’t go up to the top part of the tree? Do i need to prunce bottom part heavily? I am not sure if that is a double plum (green gage and another plum).

Cheers

Andrew

Hi Andrew, if it is a double graft then yes it is most likely that the bottom one is growing quicker than the top one, When pruning in both summer and winter it is important that both have “equal” opportunity to grow (even them out a little). Any dead wood has to be trimmed out at first sign. Thanks, the Palmers team
