Green Gage Plum in Bloom

 Last year we harvested only 2 or 3 plums off our wee tree & there is still so much I need to learn about fruit trees!

For instance, there are ants inside my blooms - are they pollinating my tree or stealing nectar that would otherwise attract the bees?

I've also notice there are no blooms on a few branches that are growing vertical so I need to figure out if plums grow like apples or should I wait a few more years to see if those branches will also produce fruit... Again, everything in the gardens has been neglected for so long that our initial care & attention has probably set back fruit production in lieu of structural growth...
