VVA-1 - Rootstock for Plum trees.
Dwarf 2.5 metres when mature. The new dwarfing rootstock for Plum trees that has replaced Pixy.
St Julien A (SJA) - Rootstock for Plum trees.
Semi dwarfing, Approximate height 3.5-4 metres when mature.
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 100-125cm in height.
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.
Fan trained Plums - Trees grow to an eventual height of around 2 m (7 ft). Although the shortest of all the forms, they will grow to a width of around 3 m and are really only a practical proposition when grown against a wall or fence.
Pollination Made Simple
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. If you have no other Plum tree close by then select two varieties in the same group or the adjoining group ie group B and D will pollinate group C as will any others in group C. Some Plum varieties are self fertile.
Collection - If you would like to collect your trees then use this option. Note the collection is from the Wholesale Nursery office between Monday-Friday only. Please allow 1 working days for your order to be processed prior to collection date.
We are not a Garden Centre or retail Nursery. Orders can be placed via our website and the collection option can be selected at the checkout. Your order will then be ready for you to collect during our normal opening hours which are Monday-Friday 07.30-16.30. Our plants are grown in fields that can be 2 miles away from our office so it is not possible to just turn up and select your own trees.
Delivery Charges - The delivery charge is worked out from the weight and the size of the plant. We have several rates that apply to UK mainland addresses. A delivery charge of £9.95 is for all single tree orders. £11.40 if more than one tree. £15.00 charge for larger orders except in the case of the Espalier Fans and Step Over trained trees where this charge is between 40.00 - £57.00 depending on the delivery location. Once you have put together your order the delivery charge will show before payment. All orders are despatched in one delivery.

Bought this on St. Julian A rootstock in Nov 2016. Tree growing well but no fruit yet. I love Victoria plums. My last tree broke under the weight of the fruit so am training this as an espalier.

Excellent service, well packaged and a great looking tree. Planting video was excellent. Rather confused when I received an email to say tree would be delayed due to mild autumn and then the next day another to say it would be delivered before the original delivery date. Would certainly use again

Excellent service by blackmoor when we ordered our first fruit trees two years ago. Last year we had a good harvest and this year we had a very heavy crop. I was wondering how such a small plant is going to bear soooo many fruits.. we had our deer friend visit and he loved the fruits and plants more I guess. Waiting for my 20 plums to ripen now. Amazing and very good quality plants I had ever seen. I am back to place my next order :)

The plant looks healthy and leaves are growing out. Just few branches has been broken when I received it due to two different plant packaging in the same box.

Victoria Plum Growing Tips.
Plums are the most popular of the stone fruit and they are also the easiest to grow. Many plum varieties are self fertile. There are two rootstocks to choose from; St Julien A which is semi vigorous and will reach a height of 3.5-4 metres when mature and VVA-1 which is dwarfing and will reach a height of 2.5 metres when mature.
How to grow a Victoria Plum tree in my garden - Our Care Guide for fruit trees will help you get the very best from your tree.
How to plant a Victoria Plum tree - Our How To Growing Tips section on our website has a video that will show you how.
When is the best time to plant a fruit tree - Container grown Plum trees can be planted at any time of the year. Bare Root Plum trees can only be planted between the months of November - April.
Planting distance for Victoria Plum trees - All fruit trees are grafted onto a rootstock. It is the rootstock that determines how big the Plum tree will grow into. There is a rootstock guide on the left hand side of all fruit tree product pages that explains this. As tall as the tree will grow into would be the planting distance. Example St Julien A will grow to 3-4 metres when mature. So a spacing of between 3-4 metres would be required.
Can I grow a Victoria Plum tree in a pot - All fruit trees will be happy growing in a large container. A pot around 50-60cm is ideal. There is more information on growing fruit trees in containers in our FAQ page.
