  • Patio Plum Tree

    Hi, I have recently been given a patio Victoria Plum tree in a 15 cm pot, I have acquired a larger pot for it but I have been told that the tree must be protected from frost, but also that it can be planted permanently into my allotment, these two things seem incompatible, any experiences which could guide me please

    Plant it out after the last frost date for your area,it’s probably because it’s so young. Plum trees like it in the ground,Victoria is a great tree.

      I have a patio plum in a large pot on my decking at rear of house. No fruit last year (its first) and no flowers so no fruit this year either.

      I also have patio pear and patio cherry. The pear has a few flowers on it but no blossom on cherry either.

        Probably just erring on the side of caution. They are completely hardy (Ihave one in the garden) and will love it on your allotment or in a pot. Just give it a little time to harden off and acclimatise to it's new surroundings as it might have been kept under glass at the growers. Blossom can be killed off by frosts but not the tree.

          You will probably get more answers if you post in the 'Feeling Fruity' section of the vine.
