Am looking to buy a fan trained plum - will just one be OK or will I need more to pollinate? Have been told that a Victoria would probably self pollinate but are there any others?

Thanks for your help - maybe I will try a shrub!



Czar. Majorie's Seedling (keeps very well). Blue Tit. Early Laxton. Victoria. All self pollinating. I think pollination is better with two trees though.

Over the last couple of years there has been a problem with fan-trained plums. Many new purchases have failed due to a problem with bacterial canker although single stemmed subjects do not seem to be troubled. Perhaps try something else?

How do I say thanks?
