Family Plum fruit tree
Family Trees are really worth considering if you are tight for space or just want to grow in a large container in a sunny part of the garden. The varieties chosen all flower at the same time enabling pollination, which in turn, will provide crops of three distinct varieties. We've found its best to grow the tree as a bush.
The family plum tree comprises of these 2 excellent varieties:
Victoria. The Uk's best loved Plum! Well known for its heavy crops of deliciously flavoured fruits, its perfect, whether eaten straight from the tree or when cooked. Reliable and attractive in appearance.
Reine Claude. A traditional French gage, very simelar to old greengages, and is probably the ancestor of all the greengages. The flavour is generally regarded as amongst the best of all, larger than most greengages with a sweet honey flavour.
Growing your own fruit trees is incredibly rewarding and the taste of the fruit picked is truly delicious – fresh, tangy and nutritious. Our range has been chosen with care and offers varieties which perform well in the UK, cropping readily for many years and providing structure and character to our gardens.
Some varieties are self-fertile, perfect if you only have room for one or two trees, but we also list the pollination group for each variety we sell – helpful if you want to add to your collection further down the line.
The vast majority of our range are offered as field grown, bare root trees dug freshly from the field (as opposed to cold stored), carefully packed and then despatched by courier.
All bare root trees will be despatched from Late November onwards (weather depending), the perfect time for planting.
All our trees are supplied with a full and complete growing guide.

Most gardens provide good pollination due
to the close proximity to other gardens with fruit trees growing in
them, so it’s not always necessary to have pollinators in your garden.
However, if you have no other fruit trees close by, then select two
varieties in the same group, or the adjoining group – so, for example,
varieties in group 2 or 4 will pollinate varieties in group 3. It’s also
worth remembering that some varieties are self-fertile.
