Description

Get hold of two Royal Horticultural Society Award of Garden Merit plum trees to add to your garden. They grow well in containers and make the perfect partners, ripening in late summer and in early autumn. The plum blossoms appear in early spring to mid spring creating a spectacle with a pair of trees covered in confetti-like blossom.

Bees then come in to add life to your garden and pollinate the flowers which starts off your fruit.

Here we describe the attributes of great plums.

A traditional favourite

Shropshire Plum Damson is the epitome of northern English damsons, with a particular rich flavour and so many uses in the kitchen, from stewing, reducing and even eating fresh.

Shropshire Prune thrives in damp climates – not typical of fruit trees generally - so this variety works well even if you live in damp areas of the UK.

Harvest Shropshire Prune in early autumn to make jams and stews to make satisfying puddings as the temperature drops.

The perfect pollinating partner

Oullins Golden Gage plum grows well in the cooler climates of Britain so makes a great partner to Shropshire Plum Damson.

Pick Oullins Golden Gage to eat fresh or prepare in the kitchen. Eaten fresh, the flesh is sweet and after ripening in the sun. For cooking and baking, we recommend you pick them when they have a bit of firmness.

The fruit is a large gage, actually more akin to a small plum. It possesses a particularly warm golden hue, with red blushes - attractive as well as tasty.

We may prune your tree before it arrives to your door. We do this to encourage your tree to branch freely which makes them better looking and more productive.
