A classic culinary damson that is perfect for jams and cake making. A heritage English variety that performs better than most in cold damp weather. Self Fertile variety.

Perfect for the damp British Weather, this classic variety is perfect for culinary uses, it makes great jam.

This popular and tasty variety is self-fertile (SF) so it flowers and fruits independently. They produce fruit, even when planted in isolation.

Receiving your bare root tree

Dig a hole that’s large enough to fit the entire root mass without any roots being broken, bent or emerging from the surface. It basically needs to be deep enough to entirely cover the roots all the way up to the soil mark on the stem.

Use a granular fertiliser to give the planting hole a boost before planting.

Position the plant into the planting hole (making sure it’s straight and upright) and fill back in with the dug-out soil.

Firm down the soil around the base of the rose gently with your hands. Give the plant a good soak with water straight away after planting. Surround the plant with a mulch of bulky compost or manure to give it a good feed and insulate the very active roots.
