This is the ideal solution where space is limited. Grown on very dwarf root stock which will produce mini patio fruit, perfect for growing in pots on the patio. They will produce delicious fruit in the first year after planting and never grow to more than 1.5-2m tall. Black Amber is an upright habit dwarf plum tree. Pink flushed white blossoms in spring give way to dark purple-black thick skinned fruit in late summer and early autumn. A beautiful addition to the patio and the fruit is an added bonus, with a mild pleasant flavour. Two year old pot grown plants supplied.

Pruning

Late Winter/Early Spring

Midget fruit trees are suitable for planting in most types of moderately fertile, well drained soil, although they do not like acid soil. If possible prepare the ground some time in advance of planting. Open out holes and plant with enough space to accommodate the roots without cramping them. Plant in a sunny location as they do not prosper too well in the shade. Begin weed control prior to planting and keep a clean ring around the plant (with a radius of approx 24inches). The midget variety are ideal for containers, perfect for patio fruit.
Young trees must be watered thoroughly and sprinkle with fertilizer each spring. You can also mulch in April with rotted manure or compost around the base of the trunk. They should be planted in well sheltered locations.
