Patio Plum Tree - Opal 2L

  • Catalogue Code 1070-9418
  • Pack Contents: 1x 2L Potted Tree

Here’s a plum variety producing compact trees the perfect size for growing on the patio. A fantastic-flavoured early plum variety which you’ll be enjoying from those late summer days in September.

Grown on roots to restrict their height to 4ft when fully grown, they produce lots of fruit at a height for easy-picking.

Rootstock: St. Julien A

This 2 year old specimen is self-fertile and will provide fruit in the following year.


Can’t plant straight away

If you can't plant up your fruit tree straight away that's fine so long as keep the roots covered in soil. You can even lay the tree horizontally on the soil so long as the roots are covered in moist soil.

Look to planting your fruit tree in its permanent position within 5-7 days. Potted fruit trees: If you can't plant up your fruit tree straight away keep your potted plant in a sunny position and keep the soil moist by watering each day. Look to planting into its permanent position within 5-7 days.

How your plants arrive

You receive our plum trees as young specimens at around 28in tall, growing strongly and sturdily and primed to produce lots of plums for you.

They arrive as a main stem studded with buds with lots of growing potential in spring.

The roots are covered in a pot in a polythene bag to keep the roots perfectly humid while transported from our nursery to your home.

When they first go in the ground, it’s their roots that really get growing; you won’t see this as it’s all happening underground. Once spring turns into summer those roots will promote lots of green growth above the soil.
