This specially bred dwarf variety, supplied on semi-dwarfing rootstock, reaches just 1.5m (59") tall - just perfect for the patio! Delicate, pink-flushed spring flowers are replaced by rounded, blue-black fruits which can be harvested in late summer and autumn. Prunus Black Amber, produces deliciously juicy, thick skinned plums with a complex, sweet flavour.

Although partially self-fertile this variety will produce a better yield if planted with a pollination companion such as Plum 'Victoria'. Supplied pot grown, 30-40cm (12-16") in height. Height and spread if grown in a container: 1m (39"). Height and spread will be larger if not containerised. Rootstock: Ferlinain.

Feed and water mini fruit trees regularly throughout the summer. In spring, while the ground is moist, apply a mulch of well rotted manure or garden compost to the base of trees grown directly in borders. This will help to retain moisture throughout the summer.Remove some of the fruit each year to allow the tree to focus on producing larger, better quality fruits. Mini plum trees require only light pruning in summer to keep their shape and remove damaged or crowded branches. Container grown plants will require repotting into increasingly larger pots up to 60cm (2') diameter as they increase in size.
Plant plum trees directly into well drained, sunny borders that have been enriched with well rotted manure or garden compost. When planting plum trees in containers, repot into 30cm pots in a well drained, soil based compost such as John Innes No. 3. Plant trees at the same soil level as they were in their original pots and firm them into their new containers. Water well and position in full sun.
