Loved the straw and so did the rabbit! The grape plants were in perfect condition. This experience, from purchase to delivery was an absolute pleasure. WILL BE RETURNING. :)

Pollinator FriendlyRHS Award of Garden Merit

An old and trusted variety that produces purple blue fruits that darken and sweeten as the mature.

Picked young, the blue skinned fruits will be found to be quite acidic - making them one of the best cooking plums (or perfect for those who like a bit more bite to their plums!).

If left on the tree the skins will darken down to near black in colour and the flesh will become much sweeter - making it lovely late season eating plum.

  • Season of use August.
  • First introduced 1871, Hertfordshire, UK.
  • Self Fertile - but pollination by another damson, gage or plum will maximise yield.
  • Grown on St Julien A rootstock for an ultimate (un-pruned) height of 12 - 15 feet (3.65 - 4.6 metres) but can easily be kept at a height of 6 - 8 feet (1.8 - 2.4 metres).

Recommended by the RHS to be an excellent attractant and nectar source for bees and other beneficial insects.

Recommended by the RHS to assist in encouraging bats into the garden as the flowers are likely to attract moths and other night-flying insects which bats love to eat!
