Cordon Plum trees are a good choice for restricted areas and a fence or wall. They can be grown at a 45degree angle, or upright. The rootstock we use for our cordon is Pixy which is the best stock for cordon trees. Plant 60-80cm’s apart.
Marjories Seedling is one of the best varieties and is suitable for all area’s. It is also recommended as a late-season extender and has fruits of very good quality.

Marjories Seedling Plum – appearance & flavour
Medium to large in size, somewhat circular, ripening to a fine deep purple usually with a dusky bloom and the occassional green flush. Flesh golden yellow with a good flavour; highly favoured for pies, jams and freezing but more than suited to dessert use when fully ripe.
Marjories Seedling – pollination
Self fertile so may be grown as a sole tree. Also a good pollinator for other varieties.
