Plum 'President' Tree - Prunus domestica - Bare Root

Code: TR0293
Plum 'President' Tree - Prunus domestica - Bare Root
Plum 'President' Tree - Prunus domestica - Root Wrapped

This tree will give marvellous fruit; dark purple and sweet, with yellow flesh, ready for eating straight off the tree, but also capable of being thoroughly enjoyable when cooked. The tree may need extra support during the fruiting season, against the weight of the crop. The tree itself will give beautiful white blossom in spring, and spend all seasons as a stunning centrepiece for your garden.

Caring and Maintenance

Water young trees regularly until roots are well established. Trim annually from mid to late summer. Apply some fertilizer in spring in order to promote healthy growth and a good crop. Optionally, mulch in spring. Check tree ties regularly and loosen any if necessary to avoid rubbing of the stems.

Planting

  • Planting Distance: 5m with 4.5m between rows

Suited to almost all, well-drained and moderately fertile soils with pH between 6.5 and 7.5 in an exposed or sheltered location in full sun.
Before planting your tree, clean up all wandering weeds and keep a clean ring around the tree base. Water well during the first year until well established.

Autumn is the best season for planting fruiting trees, as the soil moisture and heat allow easier and faster root establishment and regeneration of damaged root systems.

Pollination

  • Pollination Group: 2

Fruit trees will only produce fruit if their flowers have been pollinated. This is usually done by flying insects such as honey bees, bumblebees, flies, wasps etc. This tree is not self pollinating so it therefore requires another tree nearby of the same fruit species, but of a different variety, that flowers during the same period. The two trees will have to be near each other for the pollination process to be successful. The general consensus is that the two trees should be within 18m (55ft) of each other. To make things slightly easier fruit trees are categorised into different pollination groups. Just remember that the fruit must be of the same species but of a different variety; only an apple tree can pollinate another apple tree. However, if you buy two 'President' trees, they will not pollinate each other.

The pollination groups are numbered 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6, according to flowering time. Best results will be obtained if one tree is planted near another apple tree of the same group, or from a group on either side (so an ideal pollination partner for group 3 would be one in group 2, 3 or 4).

Selected items will be included with your purchase

This is a typical example of our root wrapped trees that you will receive - note the fruit/ornamental trees we stock will vary in appearance according to species and season. Please be aware that the compost around the roots is there just to keep them moist and will fall away when unwrapped, leaving a bare-rooted plant. You can mix this compost with your soil when planting your tree.
