Plum trees


With the fruits having such a short shelf life, plum trees are well worth growing in the garden or on the allotment to enjoy the fruits at their very best. Early plum varieties can be ready for picking from late July while others follow on in succession until the end of September.


Blossom time occurs early in Spring so choose a sheltered sunny spot, avoiding known frost pockets. Plum trees can be grown as bushes, pyramids or trained as fans. Plums have a preference for moderately fertile soils with adequate reserves of nitrogen, lime and potash.
