Plum tree help

Hi there,
We bought a house recently with a huge garden.
Tucked away between some fences and a shed is a mildly productive purple plum tree.
Any ideas on how to make it healthier?
It has a handful of plums now and is hard to reach.

Welcome to Permies!

Aren't you lucky to find a plum tree already waiting for you!  I expect that someone here knows the answer; it probably has something to do with pruning and giving it space.  I, however, am not that person.  I'm just here to say hi.

You might want to give a hint about where you are, or at least your USDA zone.  It helps people when they give out agricultural advice!

Glad to have you!
Blueberry pie is best when it is firm and you can hold in your hand. Smell it. And smell this tiny ad:
