Good evening samuria, it's best to remove the plums to reduce the weight, then trim back the branch beyond the break ensuring there are no ragged edges to the cut.  Recent thinking is not to paint the cut with any oils etc.

Cheers,  Tony.
I may be growing OLD, but I refuse to grow UP !

Hello can't advise much better than Klertiwallah the only thing I do with the cut wound is rub a bit of damp soil over the cut area I found this to be successful for the last 10 years
