We've brought together 2 of the nations most popular fruit varieties in one superb collection. Apple 'Braeburn' and Plum 'Victoria' are both well known and reliable, ensuring the perfect start to creating your own orchard! Enjoy juicy plums in summer, followed by a second, tasty crop of apples in autumn. What could be better than eating home grown fruits, picked straight from you own trees?

Collection comprises:

  • Plum 'Victoria' - This reliable British bred garden variety produces heavy crops of egg shaped, medium sized fruits that are ideal for both culinary and dessert use. Rootstock: St. Julien - Semi vigorous reaching a mature height of up to 4.5m (14'). This variety is self-fertile and does not require a pollination partner.
  • Apple 'Braeburn' - The crisp, juicy eating apples can be harvested in October and store well for up to 4 months. Rootstock: M9 - Dwarf reaching a mature height of up to 2.5m (8'). This variety is not self-fertile. For the heaviest crops it is best grown with another variety. If you only have room for one tree then make sure that a neighbour has a tree close by that can act as a suitable pollinator.

Estimated time to cropping once planted: 2 years.
Estimated time to best yields: 4 years.

Fruit trees do not suffer weed competition well. Keep weeds and grass clear from within a 30cm radius of base of the tree. In spring, while the ground is moist, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost around the base of the tree, taking care not to mound it up against the stem. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer. Feed and water apple trees during particularly dry periods.

Pruning fruit trees begins immediately after planting. Remove the central stem to just above the highest side branch. For the following 3 years, prune only the tips of the remaining main branches by one third in winter. Aim for about six main branches which will form the frame of your tree, with fruiting sub branches growing off of them. From the fourth year, some sub branches can be pruned out at the union where they join the main branch, to allow new sub branches to take their place.

In order to produce the best quality, largest fruits, the fruits should be thinned leaving two fruits remaining per cluster.

Plant fruit trees in any well drained soil in a sheltered sunny position. Prior to planting, incorporate plenty of well rotted manure or garden compost into the planting hole and drive the stake into the ground to support the tree. Staking after planting may result in damage to the root ball. Plant fruit trees at their original soil level and firm them into the ground. Fasten the tree to the stake using a tree tie, and water well.
