Patio Fruit Tree Plum 'Little Vic' 4L Potted Plant

We are delighted to be able to offer the joys of the nation's favourite Plum 'Victoria', but small enough for every garden! Now anyone can grow juicy, fresh Vics, even on a balcony, terrace or small patio. Clever fruit tree grower Will Sibley has teamed the ever-popular best-selling 'Victoria' with a very dwarfing and compact new VVA1 rootstock which removes most of the vigour that can sometiomes be the downfall of plums, creating 'Little Vic'. It's like someone has shrunk the tree - smaller in every ways, except the fruit, which is just as big and juicy as the normal variety. It still produces lovely pure white spring blossom displays, and is self-fertile, so no other plums needed for fruit - just leave the bees to do their thing. Perfect in large patio pots (minimum 30cm diameter) for 5 years or so, it produces big, juicy crops of classic red Victoria Plums, yet stays small, manageable and perfect for everyone.
