The Plum 'Victoria' grafted onto Pixy rootstock is a popular, compact, and dwarfing fruit tree, perfect for smaller gardens or limited spaces. This combination allows gardeners to cultivate plums in constrained areas without compromising on the quality or yield of the fruit.

The 'Victoria' plum is famed for its versatility and reliability, producing abundant, delectable fruits that are equally good for fresh eating or culinary uses such as jams, jellies, and baking. The plums are juicy with a sweet, rich flavor, usually ripening in late summer, offering a delightful blend of sugary and tangy taste.

This variety is distinguished by its excellent resistance to diseases, making it a resilient choice for different climates and environments. The Pixy rootstock contributes to its hardiness by restricting its growth, making it manageable and less demanding in terms of care and maintenance. Despite its smaller stature, the yield is reliably heavy, offering a bountiful harvest.

Cultivating Victoria plum on Pixy rootstock is also beneficial for enhancing the overall fruit quality, promoting earlier fruiting, and ensuring consistent productivity. It requires moderate watering, well-drained soil, and exposure to full sun to achieve optimal fruit production, making it a favorite amongst both novice and experienced gardeners.

Pixy rootstock is used primarily for plum trees, inducing dwarfing characteristics. It enables the cultivation of smaller, manageable trees, suitable for confined spaces. It is adaptable, promotes early fruiting, and is compatible with many plum varieties. However, it necessitates well-drained soils and regular watering.

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).
