YouGarden Patio Plum ‘Little Vic’ Tree in 4L Pot

YouGarden offers the joys of the nation’s favourite Plum ‘Victoria’, but small enough for every size garden. Now anyone can grow juicy, fresh Vic’s, even on a balcony, terrace, or small patio. Clever fruit tree grower Will Sibley has teamed the ever-popular best-selling ‘Victoria’ with a very dwarfing and compact new VVA1 rootstock, which removes most of the vigour that can sometimes be the downfall of plums. It’s like someone has shrunk the tree – smaller in every way, except the fruit, which is just as big and juicy as the normal variety. It still produces lovely pure white spring blossom displays, and is self-fertile, so no other plums are needed for fruit – just leave the bees to do their thing. Perfect in large patio pots (minimum 30cm diameter) for 5 years or so, it produces big, juicy crops of classic red Victoria Plums, yet stays small, manageable, and perfect for everyone. Supplied as an established plant in a 4.5L pot, ready to plant out. Specifications Supplied as an established tree, 70 cm (2½ ft) tall grown on a VVA1 dwarfing rootstock in a 4.5-litre pot. Availability: All year round Planting time: All year round Flowering time: March – April Fruiting time: July – August Top Tips Perfect in large pots on a patio – 30cm diameter or larger. Trim longer new shoots back mid-summer for better-shaped trees Care Information Apply a slow-release fertiliser such as blood, fish and bone in early spring, and mulch to retain moisture. For the biggest, juiciest plums, thin the fruits in May by removing some of the smaller, immature fruits. Then in July, while the plums are still hard, remove any that are damaged or diseased or touching others. Water regularly, and don’t let the soil dry out if planted in pots. Prune trees in late in July when they’re in full growth. For young trees, take back the new upright growth by about a third. For older, mature trees, remove any dead, diseased or dying branches and then prune the older branches hard to promote productivity, aiming for an overall goblet shape.
