I would like to know when and how (if possible) to prune my plum trees. Also, my apple trees (2 years old) have never bloomed and produced apples....too young?

Apple trees can take a number of years before they fruit, so yes I expect yours are still way too young. Plums usually do not require substantial training or pruning, but the following web site provides good instructions and diagrams for different types of fruit trees http://www.ext.vt.edu/pubs/env... so you may find it helpful.
