Product Description

Britain's best known plum and undoubtedly the nation’s favourite. This reliable British bred garden variety produces heavy crops of egg shaped, medium sized fruits that are ideal for both culinary and dessert use. ‘Victoria’ Plums make delicious pies and jams, or simply eat them straight from the tree in late August.

Grafted onto a semi-dwarfing rootstock, to produce a compact, productive tree. Plum ‘Victoria’ is self-fertile and therefore does not require a pollination companion.
Medium sized Tree - Height and spread: 2.5m (8’). Rootstock: St. Julien A. Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2-3 years.

Estimated time to best yields: 4 years.

It is always important to remember to prune plum trees only in summer months while the tree is in leaf, this helps to prevent silver leaf disease.


Guide to Planting

Plant plum trees in any well drained soil in a sheltered, sunny position. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole and drive the stake into the ground to support the tree. Staking after planting may result in damage to the root ball. Plant fruit trees at their original soil level and firm them into the ground. Fasten the tree to the stake using a tree tie, and water well.
