I put in two young fruit trees a few months ago. An apricot, and one
month later, a plum.
Yesterday I saw blooms all over the plum! Sweet little tree, just a
baby, already trying to procreate!
I assume there won't be fruit this year...but you have to hand it to
the plum for trying.
I just found this so touching!

Plum trees really need a pollinator, you should have planted two
different plum trees. And there is a good chance your plum and
apricot trees will cross pollinate and produce pluots. Newly planted
stone fruit will usually blossom the first year but may not fruit for
4-5 years. I planted two different plum trees four years ago, they
blossomed each year but this is the first year one produced plums.
I had the same combo -- plum and apricot -- for years at approx same
distance apart. They produced true fruit. When they had to be sent
to fruit heaven, I should have IMMEDIATELY replanted. Instead I let
too many years ago by. So I hope I'm still around when they produce
