    Plum Tree

    Hello,
    I recently found that my Mom has a Plum tree growning on her property(Midwestern Wisconsin) and was wondering if anyone had ideas as to how to germinate the seed and produce a tree. Just curious. I would like some more trees on my 2.5 acre plot.
    Thanks,

    Chris.

    RE: Plum Tree

    You will need to try many seeds, and chances are far from 100% that any of them will succeed. Wrap them in a damp paper towel, put that in a plastic bag and place the seeds in the fridge for the winter. In early spring. Place them in some kind of seed-starting soil, perhaps 1/2 buried in the soil, or perhaps all covered up, but very shallowly. Place in a greenhouse or someplace warm with good humidity. If you haven't got a greenhouse, place some plastic wrap lightly over the edges of the pot. After they start to sprout, take the wrap off and keep them damp (not soaking wet). You'll probably want to keep them containerized for about a year. Make sure you keep the roots warm during their first winter. Good luck.
