Available for delivery: late November - early May.


More Information

Plums, gages and damsons are a wonderful choice of tree to grow in the garden as in favourable conditions they will crop reliably, producing masses of fruit year after year. Cordons should be restricted to 1.8-2.4m (6-8ft) in height and can be spaced 90cm (3ft) apart. Choose a sunny, sheltered spot. To ensure rapid establishment, cordon plum trees are supplied bare-rooted and will be 1.2-1.5m (4-5ft) high on despatch.  Trees are available from late November to early May.


Don't forget to include tree stakes and ties on your order.  All young fruit trees require staking and for better establishment we strongly advise using Rootgrow when planting (as recommended in RHS planting guidelines).
