Question: What is the best time of year to prune plum trees?

When to prune plums Avoid pruning plums in winter, as it increases the risk of infection by silver leaf disease to which plums and other Prunus species are prone. The best time for pruning is usually spring for young trees and mid-summer for established ones.

Can I prune my plum tree now?

Prune when the buds are just bursting, or when the tree is just beginning to flower. Established plum trees that are more than three years old can be pruned in summer, from mid-June onwards. Each pruning cut will result in several thin shoots growing – these will need to be thinned the following summer.
