Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral fatefulsky On Jun 27, 2010, fatefulsky from Arvada, CO wrote:

When I moved into my home about 2 years ago, I found that there is a plum tree in the corner of the yard that was being choked by some sort of vine that was coming over from a neighbors yard (inconsiderate neighbor couldn't keep his vine in check). I have finally killed the vine off of the tree and it's doing much better, but has yet to even flower. What can I do to get it to flower next year?

Short-lived here in the coastal South. Grows well for a few years then succumbs to the nearly year-round warmth and summer heat.
