My plum was laden - the daughter had to switch her freezer on to accommodate them as mine is full of other stuff. Bet we get none next year though whilst it takes a serious rest.

Yes, it does seem to be an every second year syndrome. Last winter I bought a second Victoria and planted it about 100 metres from the other in the hope that a totally different micro-climate might see us getting plums every year
