    VAT is not chargeable on these plants.

Large, good quality, oval blue-black plums. Juicy yellow flesh of good flavour. Very good cropper, vigorous upright habit and good disease resistance. Late flowering so should escape spring frosts. If refrigerated after picking the fruit can keep for up to a month. Raised in Staffordshire in 1912 by Burleydown Nurseries, then it was sold to a Worcestershire man, Mr. Sykes, who named it after his wife Marjorie.

Pollinators

Plum, Marjorie's Seedling is in pollination group 3, it is reasonably self-fertile but will fruit better with a pollinator. Choose a pollinator in group 2 or 3, click here for a list of suitable plums trees.

Plum, Marjorie's Seedling is available as:

Br = Bare Root Plant

Maiden - A maiden tree is a single stemmed tree which has not been trained so can be trained into whatever form you wish. It typically is between 1-2 metres tall and will have a few side shoots.

Bush - This a maiden tree that has had its main stem cut to encourage branches low to the ground making it easier to pick and maintain.

Bare-Root Plants

Bare-root plants are sold without a pot/soil around the roots. This is a more cost effective and environmentally friendly way of growing plants. To ensure the best plant health we do not store our plants in cold storage, but they are left in our field or plant beds until they are ready for packing or collection.

Items marked Br are bare rooted plants grown from cuttings and are typically 1-2 years old.

Availability

Bare rooted plants are only available when the plants are dormant (typically from late November to March).

If a plant is currently out of stock because it is out of season (for example, bare rooted plants in summer) or we have sold out but we are expecting more to be available you can pre-order the plant. We only charge credit/debit cards when an order is despatched, not when an order is placed.

Rootstocks

Rootstocks are used to restrict the vigour of fruit trees and allow a range to grow in a small space. They can also contribute to the disease resisting abilities of the plant.[from RHS - Update]

St Julien A - A semi-vigorous rootstock that is suitable for growing bush, half standard and fan trees. Typically fruits after 3 or 4 years and requires staking for 5 years. Tree spacing 5m (18ft). Ultimate height as trained as bush: 4.5-5m (14-18ft).
