Our bare rooted trees are hand lifted from our nursery on the day or day before despatch. There will be no soil around the roots but they are covered with a bag to prevent them drying out. If you are unable to plant the trees immediately there is no need to panic. The trees are completely dormant this time of year, which means as long as the roots are kept out of the frost and well wrapped up no harm will come to them, although the sooner you can get them planted in the ground the better.
All of our plum trees are grown in the UK to the highest standard. Every order comes complete with planting instructions and a guide to looking after your purchase. (Example of our 2 year old, 10 litre Bush and Half Standard Plum trees can be seen to the left. Please note that sizes may vary slightly depending on the time of year and which rootstock you have chosen.)
