1 x 4 Litre Potted Tree
As an RHS Award of Garden Merit Winner this dwarf plum fruit tree is a real delight in your garden. Delicious eaten fresh off the tree, it also cooks well. Reliable and very heavy cropping. Ripens in August. Supplied in a 4 litre pot at a height of approximately 70cm (27½").
(Please Note: Pot shown is for illustration purpose only.)
Small trees adapted to grow in different container sizes. And if you want, you can also transplant them into the open ground. They are a selection of the tastiest varieties of the most popular fruit species. All are self-fertile. Trees are grafted onto the most innovative rootstock, which reduces the vigour of the plant, provides a controlled growth and improves the characteristics of the fruits! Eventual height 1.5-2m, depending on container size.
All trees need pruning in some way and trees are very adaptable. What makes our patio range special is that they are quite happy in a pot for their lives, and naturally have an eventual height that does not exceed 2m, but they are just as happy and productive at 75cm. That is down to rootstock and the clonal selection.
Please see our supplier’s comments about his trees - In this image (under the main image) is a Garden Sun Red apple tree which I have grown in the same pot for the last 5 years. As you can see it is my height and that’s the height, I wish it to be. It would be equally happy at 75cms though. Just to the left of me in the image is a patio almond which is now 7 yrs. old and as you can see that is just 75cms high and covered in fruits. It’s the size I wanted it to be.
The plum is a very easy fruit to grow in the garden and is capable of yielding huge crops. Plums can be grown as a bush tree yet most modern crops are produced by cultivation in the central leader style. Once the main framework of the tree is established little extra pruning is required beyond removal of damaged or badly placed wood. Pruning is best done in early summer to reduce the risk of silver leaf infection, preferably painting pruning cuts with a sealing compound. In the bottom place a 23cm (9") of tightly packed broken bricks or rubble. Refill with soil adding well rotted manure or garden compost and a little bonemeal. In a pit plant 23cm (9") away from the base of the wall. In both pots and a pit they should be planted firmly.
