Sibley's Patio Gage 'Oullins Golden Gage'

Sibley's Patio Gage 'Oullins Golden Gage' Code: PLM041

£38.95 38.9500 In Stock New

This patio version of Oullins Golden Gage has been developed by fruit authority Will Sibley, who has for many years been working on a range of fruit trees for the home gardener. It has been grafted onto VVA1 dwarfing rootstock using special grafting techniques to keep the tree even more compact. Rated by the Victorian writer Hogg as having "exquisite flavour and handsome appearance" this old French variety is more like a plum than a true gage. The fruits are large by gage standards and particularly attractive - golden yellow with faint red spots. Eaten fresh, the flesh is sweet and gage-like with a fruity flavour, far superior to most shop-brought plums. The fruits are also excellent cooked and freeze very well. An excellent choice for the garden, the tree crops reliably countrywide, even in poor summers. Can be kept restricted to a height of 1.2m (4ft).

 

Supplied as a one year old tree in a 4 litre pot. The tree is grafted at about 30cm (1ft) above soil level and has 2-3 shoots about 20cm (8in) long that will quickly develop into a bushy head.

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. Our plum trees are grafted onto St. Julien ‘A’ rootstock, which will produce a tree with medium vigour that can be trained into a bush, cordon, pyramid or fan. Bush plum trees will grow 3.6-4.6m (12-15ft) in height and spread. Choose a sunny, sheltered spot. To ensure rapid establishment, 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 late April.

 

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