Product Description

Named in honour of the much-loved Queen, 'Victoria' Plum is the UK's favourite plum variety by a mile and deservedly so! The delicious fruits are ready to pick year late in the summer and taste simply mouth-watering when eaten straight from the tree. With the remaining fruit you can make jams and preserves and of course, eat them stewed with custard!

Having been discovered in Alderton, Sussex in 1844 and grown and enjoyed by gardeners every year since, 'Victoria' really has stood the test of time - undoubtedly because of its sublime flavour and productivity - a fully established tree of this 'self-fertile' variety will produce up to 100lbs of fruit in a bumper season!

Supplied on a 'dwarfing' rootstock. Fruits are ready to pick each July and taste simply mouth-watering straight from the tree. A fully established tree of this self-fertile variety will produce up to 100lbs of fruit in a bumper season!

 

I just had to tell you that I bought a Victoria plum tree and a sweet cherry tree earlier in the year. Both arrived in wonderful condition, spent some time in a bucket having a good drink as recommended, then planted.  I was fascinated to see blossom appear on both trees. Considering they were young dwarf stock I hardly expected to see that. I expected they would spend their first few years putting down roots.
 
I have just eaten the first plum of 6 my little tree produced.  Oh my, what flavour, what sweetness! It truly stopped me in my tracks.
 
Anyway I thought I just had to tell you what joy my little tree has brought.
 
Thank you. A very satisfied customer!

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Add Rootgrow Mycorrhizal Fungi to give your plants a head start and establish more quickly.

Care Guide

  • Apply a slow-release fertiliser such as blood, fish and bone in early spring, and mulch to retain moisture.
  • For the biggest, juiciest plums, thin the fruits in May by removing some of the smaller, immature fruits. Then in July, while the plums are still hard, remove any that are damaged or diseased or touching others.
  • Water regularly, and don't let the soil dry out if planted in pots.
  • Hang wasp traps in trees and harvest crops as soon as they ripen. Avoid leaving windfalls or over-ripe fruit on the ground.
  • Prune trees in late in July when they're in full growth. For young trees, take back the new upright growth by about a third. For older, mature trees, remove any dead, diseased or dying branches and then prune the older branches hard to promote productivity, aiming for an overall goblet shape.

    The quality was poor, a stick with no branches, at 20+ pounds horrified. 1000% better quality from Aldi or Liddell.
    The replacement was the same, a few stupa as branches, these were all broken. Customer service were good just poor quality of product, won't be trying again as over priced and poor products used so far

    Not happy with what I found had been delivered, not had the usual quick response/quality/resolving C.S. which means unhappy customer.
    Product:
    Plum Victoria? bare root. Cannot confirm the tree as no label anywhere, either on the tree or in the box and is dormant etc., If it turns out to be Plum Victoria not a good specimen and certainly not the usual quality I have received.

    I am sorry to hear that two of the trees aren't thriving. There are a huge number of factors outside our control that could have affected its growth in the months since you received it, however we're happy to replace under our Lifetime Guarantee.
