Plumcot

    3 responses

Colin JH starts with ...
My Plumcot is two years old and I now have just read that it needs another tree to pollinate it. I must have missed that bit when I bought it.
As I only have a small area and don't want to plant the same tree if I can avoid it, is there another variety of fruit tree that I could plant that would provide the pollination while giving me a variety of produce.
Thanks
Colin

Hi Colin


You don't need to plant another tree for improving cross pollination. Just graft another plum or apricot that flowers approximately the sane time as your plumcot. Do it before bud burst.

Happy gardening :-)

Thank you Fruitylicious1's
That sounds like a great solution.
Can I trouble you with another question, can I buy a graft section or do I buy a small potted plum or apricot and take my cutting from it.

Hi Colin

The cheaper solution is to ask family members, friends, neighbors if they have the variety that you after; if it fails, ask some forum member's in your state if they have the one you are looking for and if they are willing to send it to you or if you can pick up the scions. If all fails buy a bare root tree from your nearest nursery and use the stems for grafting.

Happy gardening :-)
