Britain's best-loved and most popular garden Plum variety - for good reason

named in honour of the much-loved Queen, 'Victoria' Plum is the UK's favourite plum variety by a mile and deservedly so! The delicious fruits are ready to pick year late in the summer and taste simply mouth-watering when eaten straight from the tree. With the remaining fruit you can make jams and preserves and of course, eat them stewed with custard!

Having been discovered in Alderton, Sussex in 1844 and grown and enjoyed by gardeners every year since, 'Victoria' really has stood the test of time - undoubtedly because of its sublime flavour and productivity - a fully established tree of this 'self-fertile' variety will produce up to 100lbs of fruit in a bumper season! Supplied on a 'dwarfing' rootstock. Fruits are ready to pick each July and taste simply mouth-watering straight from the tree. A fully established tree of this self-fertile variety will produce up to 100lbs of fruit in a bumper season!

Britain's best-loved and most popular garden Plum variety - for good reason

Sumptuous yellow-fleshed red-skinned fruits in late Summer, heavy crops once established

Self-fertile so no pollinators are needed, and on a dwarfing rootstock, so will not grow to more than 11-12ft tall

Grows in most spots avoid damp and wet, but also grow well in large pots

Supplied as a bare-root dormant tree 1.3-1.5M tall to plant straight out Nov - May,

Many of our trees and shrubs are supplied as bare-root, especially during this time of the year. Bare root means dormant and with the roots out of the soil and the plant can appear to be dead. Different plants grow at different rates - it also depends on the time of the year, the species, the weather, etc. It can take up to 8 weeks to show signs of growth.


If you have any queries about the health of your plant upon arrival, please note we may ask you to do a thorough scratch test. To do this, scratch back a small section of the branch with a thumbnail or sharp knife. It should come away easily. If underneath is green, the plant is fine, and just needs more time and warmer weather. If it is brown, the plant is dead at that point. Sometimes the tips of smaller branches will die back, but the tree itself is OK. If you find a brown branch, move closer to the main trunk and repeat, and check the trunk itself. If you find green lower down, prune back to where you find green, and it will shoot from there. If the main trunk is brown, the plant is unfortunately dead - please contact us with photos of your tests.
