Plant Info

We are delighted to be able to offer the joys of the nation's favourite Plum 'Victoria', but small enough for EVERY garden! Now anyone can grow juicy, fresh Vics, even on a balcony, terrace or small patio.

Clever fruit tree grower Will Sibley has teamed the ever-popular best-selling 'Victoria' with a very dwarfing and compact new VVA1 rootstock, which removes most of the vigour that can sometiomes be the downfall of plums. It's like someone has shrunk the tree - smaller in every ways, except the fruit, which is just as big and juicy as the normal variety. It still produces lovely pure white spring blossom displays, and is self-fertile, so no other plums needed for fruit - just leave the bees to do their thing!

Perfect in large patio pots (minimum 30cm diameter) for 5 years or so, it produces big, juicy crops of classic red Victoria Plums, yet stays small, manageable and perfect for everyone.

++ Service rating : excellent service,very polite and helpful.
Product : quality goods, well packed,looking forward to good crop.
NA very quick service after order placed (almost too quick!) Plant well packed
NA Service rating : Left outside front door for anyone to see.I asked for it to be left in car port .Took longer to arrive than the stated 10 days.
Product : I thought the container would be bigger i.e. It didn't seem 4 litres I would have liked precise instructions on how to plant,care for my tree rather than very general information. I will not know if the tree is healthy till the spring,It looks ok now but difficult to tell
+ Delivered promptly. Well packaged.
++ Service rating : Ordering easy, delivery well packed and arrived in a good time.
Product : Good sized healthy plant. Very pleased.
NA Service rating : Very good and quick service.
Product : The tree was very well packed for the long journey from You Garden. However when it reached Exeter some small twigs were broken. Perhaps a bit more packing on both sides of the tree will help to stop it moving in the box. We now look forward to spring blossom and hopefully some fruit in the autumn. Thanks
+ No complaint
+ Service rating : Overall very pleased. Arrived at the time they said, packaging was very good. Each tree individually packed and they were secure (although the delivery man had used holes in the box to carry and it was ripped. The plastic tape still held it together).
Product : Seems in good condition. Quite small but not had a patio plum before so maybe this is normal. Soil in pot looks in good condition.

Packaging was very good.
+ Service rating : Fruit trees carefully packaged and well grown. Healthu root systems and grafts.

YouGarden Comments
Good Afternoon June, I am sorry to hear about your damaged Plum tree. Please send us some images for us to send to our nursery manager and we shall then send you a replacement tree FOC!

- Service rating : The original item was poor. The company kept saying it was weather damage even after I contacted the RHS who confirmed that it was pest or disease. Eventually a replacement was offered
Product : The original item was in poor condition. The replacement is much better
++ Service rating : Fine.
Product : Fine
+ I ordered 2 trees and two pots (advertised as a pair) and some soil. The first package had the compost only, the second had one pot and one tree and the third had just a tree. Despite several emails I have still not received the second pot. If I had known your company would be using Yodel as a delivery service I would not have ordered anything. They are notoriously unreliable and will lie to save their dwindling reputation.
YouGarden Comments
I am sorry to hear that you are unhappy with your order.

You ordered two potted trees (not advertised as a pair) and the pots and compost. As explained previously by my colleague and detailed on our website, compost is always sent separately due to the size and weight of the bag.

We are very sorry that some of your original order was missing and have resolved this for you.

YouGarden Comments
I am afraid that to deliver to certain outlying areas such as yours, we have to pass on a surcharge which is charged to us by our courier.

The alternative would be to charge all customers more, which would not be fair.

Head of Customer Service
+ Tree arrived safely in good time. Now to wait for results!!!!
+ Service rating : On the whole your service is very good
Product : Product well packed but the contents were so much smaller than expected from your brochure description, however it will grow given time. I am not a lover of Ideal World employees they should be kept away from plants, leave descriptions to your own employees, the begonias I bought have yet to be planted, which should be soon now the cold winds have abated,

I was a bit worried I had paid twice because when I placed the order on line you garden emailed me a receipt so I thought I had already paid. Surely a receipt is evidence of money received.
