I have a Victoria plum tree which I bought late last year and planted in a large pot (I was advised that this was a mini orchard variety). I pruned the tree in June but it is now looking quite tatty (the leaves are moth eaten and going yellow) - see picture - do I need to prune again? Is there another pruning needed for this tree apart from June? Please help

I think it might just be autumn. My garden trees are finally turning. Look up silver leaf disease - the guidance is not to prune plums in the autumn and winter to avoid silver leaf infection, so I would leave it alone till next summer.
