Britain's best known plum and undoubtedly the nation's favourite.

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 plum trees during particularly dry periods.


Care should be taken when pruning plum trees to avoid winter pruning as this leaves plums prone to silver leaf disease. In the first spring after planting, select 3 or 4 well spaced branches on a clear trunk of at least 75cm (29"), and shorten them by two thirds. Remove the central stem to just above the highest of the selected branches. Remove any laterals below the selected branches.


In the following spring, select 2 or 3 sub laterals on each branch and shorten these by half to create a balanced, open framework. Remove any weak or badly placed shoots completely. In future years, plums will require pruning in late spring to remove damaged, badly placed or diseased wood. Thin heavy crops when the fruits reach the size of hazelnuts to prevent the branches from snapping under their weight. Allow one fruit every 7-10cm (3-4") along each stem.

Plant plum 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.

Victoria Plum Tree 2015-05-08

Took two years to fruit and only 6 plums developed, waiting to see what they taste like. However, the lack of fruit could have been the fault of Mr Blackbird as it was covered in flowers in spring; should come with a net warning. First delivery died almost on arrival, second lost two of its main stems/branches; no leaves just dead branches. What's left seems healthy enough.

T&M replied on 2015-08-07: Thank you for your review. I am sorry to learn of your disappointment with your purchase. If you would like to contact our Customer Care Department at ccare@thompson-morgan.com, one of our agents will be more than happy to advise accordingly.

Gorgeous looking 2012-12-13

My Patio Victoria Plum tree has just arrived and it looks lovely and healthy. She is currently getting her feet wet in a bucket of water whilst I prep a large container for her to live in. I hope she will be happy in a container.

superb plum 2012-05-30

absolutely lovely, my tree (which looked like a twig with roots) arrived boxed really well, at first impressions i thought well its going to be a while before I see any leaf even, I plated immediately as per the instructions received, and hey presto 1 week later i could already see the buds developing, and 1 month later, its looking lovely and leafy, a very healthy looking - think its gonna be a good one :-)

Plum tree by post! 2011-08-20

Our plum tree arrived in the post last year and for months it remained a brown twig-promoting much entertainment to visitors when we proudly told them it was our plum tree. But when Spring arrived it sprung into action and we have a lovely leafy tree that is growing really well on our balcony. Very happy with it.
