Planting+

Plum 'Queen Victoria' grows best in the garden, in a sunny location in fertile soil. Make sure the root ball is well-moistened before planting by soaking it in a bucket of lukewarm water. Prepare a large hole and loosen the soil. Improve poor garden soil by mixing in some compost and garden manure. Plant Plum 'Queen Victoria' at the appropriate depth in the hole. The top of the root ball should be slightly below ground level. Place the tree next to a sturdy stake and wrap a tree belt around the stake and trunk. Fill the hole with soil and press firmly. Give it plenty of water immediately after planting. Plum 'Queen Victoria' grows well in an area with complete sunshine.

Care+

Plum 'Queen Victoria' is a strong plum tree. Each winter put a mulch of compost and granulated cow manure around the trunk. During dry periods water more often. Remove any branches growing from the roots. In July, you can perform fruit thinning by removing the smallest fruits so that all the energy goes to the larger fruit. The plums can be harvested in August. Pick them carefully, leaving the stems on. Make sure you do not remove any twigs or leaves, as this will also remove the next season’s buds. Take care not to damage the plums with your nails. This makes the fruit more susceptible to mould. They are not tolerant of too much water.

Plum tree can be pruned

You can prune Plum 'Queen Victoria' annually or biennially, preferably from April-September. Heavy pruning is not necessary. Only prune where this is strictly necessary. After harvesting, completely remove vertically growing branches. Try to keep a fairly open crown. Using a rope, bend down branches that are growing in all different directions to promote a much better fruit production.

Extra+

The Plum 'Queen Victoria' is a beautiful spring bloomer. In March and April, the branches become completely covered with white blossoms. The first harvesting of the plums usually takes place in August. The skin of Plum 'Queen Victoria' is reddish yellow. These plums can be eaten fresh, great for the table, preserves, chutney ... or even wine making! Even the last few green plums can still make excellent jam. Plums are also ideal for preservation. Their flesh is firm, juicy and very rich in vitamin C.
