Plum Tree 'Methley'
‘Methley’ is one of the best Japanese plums and although from the outside appears like any of our traditional varieties, beneath lies a stunning blood red flesh which is extremely sweet and juicy. It is excellent for eating fresh off the tree, but can also be cooked with and makes the most delicious jams and preserves. This beautiful variety is also worth growing for its dazzling display of sweetly scented, pure white blossom in spring. 'Methley' is self-fertile and easy to grow but because it flowers early does best in a warm sheltered position so as to protect the young buds.
Plum trees are grafted on a St Julian ‘A’ rootstock and will reach an eventual height of 3.5-4.5m (12-15ft). Trees should be planted 3.5-4.5m (12-15ft) apart.
Available for delivery from late November until late March.
Please remember that fruit trees do require staking for the first few years of their life, we also strongly recommend the use of rootgrow™ when planting to encourage strong root growth and aid establishment.
