Victoria Plum Tree

The UK's favourite - reliable, versatile and delicious!

The Highlights

    • A Heritage variety dating back to the Victorian era prized for its extra large, purple & yellow fruit with juicy flesh and sweet taste
    • Dual-purpose plum: lovely eaten fresh but great for cooking too - perfect for jams!
    • Super easy to grow and a prolifically heavy cropper - ideal for beginners
    • Happy in most well-draining soils and prefers a sunny site
    • Midseason harvest - August
    • Self-fertile - will produce good crops without pollination
  • Our potted trees are supplied in EcoPots™. Eco pots use 70% less plastic and are fully recyclable, unlike normal single-use pots. They flex and so produce less root spiralling and travel better in the post.MORE
  • All of our fruit trees are between 18 & 36 months old and will be professionally pruned before dispatching. This formative pruning can involve cutting the main leader if the expert tree growers decide this will produce a better-shaped tree. This can stop the tree from becoming "leggy", and promote stronger, bushier growth.MORE

  • Rootstocks Available
    • SJA Rootstock: Max size H4m x W4m Rootstocks restrict the size of a tree to make it more suited for an average gardenMORE
    • Pixy Rootstock: Max size H3m x W3m
    • Cordon Trained: Max size H2m x W1m This tree has been pruned and trained to create a cordon shape, which will result in a narrow upright tree, with only short side branches. This is perfect for smaller spaces, and will still produce a good amount of fruitMORE
    • Dwarf: Max size H1.5m x W1m Patio trees are pruned and trained to be suitable for growing in pots, on patios. This means they will be fine with their growth being restricted and produce a productive little treeMORE

Bare Root
Our bare root trees are lifted fresh from the field, wrapped in a moisture retentive covering and packed straight away. You can be sure they will be fresh when they arrive. In winter, you can store for several weeks if kept in a cool, dark spot. Later in spring, when the temperature rises, you will want to plant within a few days of arrival.
9L Eco Pot
This tree is supplied in a 9L Eco Pot, which is approx W15 x H30cm. Eco Pots use 70% less plastic then traditional pots and can be recycled easily. A 9L pot allows ample space for good root development and can support a good size tree.

4.5L Pot
This tree is supplied in a 4.5L Pot, which is approx W10 x H20cm. A 4.5L pot allows ample space for good root development but are good for restricting. the growth of the tree into something more minature.

Time to first crop:

2 Years
Although Victoria crops quicker than other varieties, you may only see your first few handfuls of plums 2 years after planting, so you should not expect substantial crops until the 4/5th year.

Hardiness:

Hardy
May require some protection from very late frosts as this can damage the flowers. This won't cause lasting damage to the tree but will reduce the yield of fruit that year.

Pollination group:

3
Pollination groups relate to the time of the year when a tree flowers. Trees that flower at the same time can pollinate each other, which helps produce fruit if not self fertile, and can still improve yields even if they are. Trees can usually pollinate a group either side of their own; i.e "2" can Pollinate 1,2&66

Uses:

Eating, Making Jams

Rootstock:

St. Julien A
Plum varieties are usually grown by grafting them to rootstocks. This has benefits for pest resistance, genetics and the efficiency of propagation. Importantly, it also limits the height of a tree to a more manageable, specific height. SJA plum trees tend to only reach 4m tall, perfect for smaller spaces or those afraid of stepladders. They can also be trained to a smaller size by pruning or restricting the roots, by keeping in a smaller pot

Care Guide

Excellent Pest and Disease Resistance

Shows excellent resistance to the main pests and diseases for plum trees including cracking. There may still be a need to keep an eye out for aphids and caterpillars

Water in well when planting - read on for ongoing care

Water in thoroughly when planting. For bare root trees

Full sun

Full sun means receiving direct sun for more than 6 hours each day during the spring/summerMORE

Prefers well drained

loamy soils

No need to feed

Don't worry

Some structural pruning required

Some pruning should be done each winter to ensure that your Plum tree maintains a productive shape. This can improve yields and prevent disease. Read more detail in our knowledge articles below.MORE
