Prunus domestica is a small, twiggy, deciduous, fruiting tree with arching branches and oval, toothed, green leaves. Lovely, white flowers appear in clusters of 2 or 3, in spring, at the same time as leaves. Plum fruits are smooth, round to oblong, red, blue, purple or black with juicy, sweet, sometimes sour, greenish or yellow flesh, ready for harvesting summer or autumn. Prunus domestica grows best in moderately fertile, slightly acidic, moist, well-drained soils, but can adapt to a wide range of soils. It thrives in full sun or dappled shade. It is resistant to frost, but needs to be sheltered from harsh winter winds. It is self-fertile, but the crop is better with a pollinator nearby. Rarely attacked by diseases. Requires some pruning and fruit thinning. Prunus domestica is a popular fruit tree grown mostly for its juicy, tasty fruit, but also has some decorative value. Plums can be eaten fresh, dried or used for culinary purposes.

Arundel Arboretum is a shrub and tree retail nursery with over 40 years of experience.

About Us

During this time, we have developed a large stock of trees, mature evergreen shrubs, conifers, Japanese maples, cedars and olives. What sets us apart from a generic garden center is solid unwavering focus on trees and some bigger shrubs. You will find thousands of trees, hundreds of varieties and lots of experts who are working on the nursery and more than willing to help you to choose a plant for you.

What you will not find is hot tubs, garden furniture and plastic garden gnomes. In a nutshell, trees is what we know and trees is what we do, and only trees (and some shrubs to go with the trees).
