True to their name, Gold plums are medium-sized fruit with golden-yellow skin and yellow flesh. The fruit ripens in early summer and is sweet and juicy and perfect for eating fresh or using in your favorite recipes. The Gold Plum tree is a heavy producer so there will be plenty of plums to share with family and friends. The tree requires 400 chill hours and needs to be planted near other plum trees for pollination. USDA ZONES: Zone 6, Zone 7, Zone 8, Zone 9, Zone 10

Most Plant Me Green trees can be shipped and planted any time of year, unless the variety is specified as only seasonal delivery (such as bare root trees). Our shipping schedule is Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday. This is to ensure our trees do not stay in a box longer than necessary and arrive to you as healthy as possible. If a package needs to arrive prior to a specific date, or at a more convenient time for you, please notate that upon placement of your order. On some occasions, severe weather and other unusual issues can delay shipping and delivery of your Plant Me Green package. Holiday shipping schedules are set by the carriers.
First, decide on a planting location. Consider carefully what kind of sun, soil, and growing-space your tree or shrub will need. Once you've located the perfect spot, the hole you are digging must be at least double the width and as deep as the root system you are planting. The top of the root system should be level with the ground. Before placing the tree or shrub in the hole, use your hands to gently break up the root system. Once the tree is in place, backfill the hole with native soil and any leftover potting material. Pack down the soil to eliminate any air pockets. When finished, water thoroughly. To insure your plants a successful growth rate and productive life, plant your seedlings per the instructions included in your PlantMeGreen package.
To encourage a vigorous and high yielding plum tree, thin the tree's fruit in May and again in July, removing the damaged and diseased fruit so that the rest have room to grow. Prune plum trees in the winter. Regularly remove suckers from around the base of the tree.

Tree seems to be dying

I planted it a day after I got it, and have been watering it every day or so depending on the weather. But I notice that it seems to be withering away and possibly dying. The other trees I ordered are fine and flourishing.
