Greengage fruit trees can be a great addition to your plot, although the fruits may look rather plain and uninviting – they have an exceptional flavour and will quickly become a firm favourite for all who enjoy good jams, pies and desserts!
Greengage fruit trees are easy to grow and will tolerate all garden soil types (that do not become waterlogged in wet spells), our Greengage trees are grafted onto a St Julien A rootstock and will grow to around 4 metres high over time. Greengage trees are best planted in full sun and once established require little maintenance.
Our Greengage fruit trees are self fertile so there is no need for another tree to pollinate them.
When planting we recommend using rootgrow to give your young Greengage Fruit tree a great start, it pays to keep the immediate area around your young tree free of weeds and grass for the first couple of seasons, adding a mulch of bark chippings or similar will also conserve moisture during dry weather and result in better growth and earlier cropping.
