St Julien A (SJA) - Rootstock for Gage trees.

Bare Root = Field grown trees that have been freshly lifted and supplied with no soil around the roots. Only available during the dormant period November-April
10 Litre = Container grown and can be planted all year round. The size refers to the number of litres of compost that the container holds.
1 Year Maiden = A one year old tree and the size depends on the variety but in general they will be 125cm in height and will have some side branches.
2 Year Bush = A two year old tree that has been pruned back in the first winter to form a bush shape. Generally trees will be 140-160cm in height with multiple side branches. This height guide is an end of summer height.   


Most suburban situations provide good pollen due to the close proximity of other gardens. It is not always necessary to have pollinators if the bees and other pollinating insects are generous with their visits. Gages are self fertile.

Very pleased with the dwarf rootstock Greengage received today. Excellent packing. It looks very healthy at the moment so hope to get some fruit in time. Thank you Blackmoor.

Very happy with the tree delivered today. As with everything else I’ve ordered from Blackmoor, the quality and size of the tree are absolutely A1! The packaging they use is incredible and stands up to courier treatment very well. I’m sure I’ll be ordering more very soon.

I was bought a cambridge gage by my husband in Feb 2018 and it has established well and put on good growth since then. I am very pleased with it. It arrived quickly and in excellent health.

I received a very healthy looking tree from Blackmore back in November 2015 it is now 8 foot tall and growing. It has yet to produce a fruit but it did flower last year so I am hopeful I will get some fruit this year.

I come back to Blackmoors time and time again because the fruit stock is second to none; the customer service is excellent; the packaging is sturdy; despatch is swift ie a few days rather than weeks. Again, this Cambridge Green I have just received is one fine specimen. Thankyou so much everyone at Blackmoors. I love my tree!
