Pixy plum 2nd year hopes are high

My pixy plum tree (Victoria plum on Pixy / semi-dwarfing rootstock) was bare last year (first year), a big disappointment.

The damson / plum tree (Merryweather on Saint Julian A / semi-vigorous rootstock) gave only a punnet or so, it was also planted at the same time as the pixy so it’s a worthwhile comparison.

This year there was very little blossom on the damson tree and few (if any) fruit buds now.

However, the pixy bloomed and we have lots of fruit buds:20130520-224620.jpg
I’m hoping for a Victoria plum this year!
