Attractive - Easy to Grow - Bushels of Plums

You'll love picking these delicious, sun ripened Methley plums from your very own tree... just outside your door!

This vigorous plum tree, considered more productive and attractive than just about any other plum tree, produces an abundant harvest of fruit each year.

So much, in fact, that one harvest requires multiple pickings! It's an upright, spreading tree with pretty springtime blossoms and glossy green leaves that make it quite ornamental.

The juicy, deep red fruit of the Methley is harvested in late June to early July, and is delicious... eaten freshly picked or make into preserves.

The Methley is self-fertile and does not require another plum tree to produce fruit, and it is a dwarf variety that grows to only 10-20 feet tall.

This makes it the ideal plum tree for limited spaces. It is also a low maintenance tree that requires little to no pruning. Disease resistant and tolerant of dry, hot conditions. Prefers full sun, but is adaptable to nearly any type of soil. An ideal fruit tree for growing zones 5-9.

Received my Methley Plum Tree last week. It was in good shape w/ lots of leaves, planted the next day per instructions, water, soil, used planting kit. Next day leaves were dying, in two days all leaves are dead, Have soaker hose around the tree & my orange trees. I am in Texas and temperature has been in 90's.

Awesome plum trees! I already have about 12 plums going on one of these trees. They are already pruned & shaped nicely, so very low maintenance, just add water! I love this tree. I have other fruit trees that are well, but this is my first plum

Tough and beautiful
I bought 6 of them in May 2014.. I couldn't plant them 'til they were bone dry. None of them should have survived, but every one did and they spent the summer growing splendidly The Massachusetts weather allowed them to be watered only when first planted. . Beautiful well-branched trees. Incidentally, although they were in planters, they looked and behaved like bare-root, which may be why they survived drying out. We are rated Zone 5, but it's pretty cold. I'll be interested to see how they handle it.

First season Methley Plum Tree
Purchased the tree in the fall, stuck it in my greenhouse until the March. As soon as I put in the ground it started gerting leaves and blossoms. Only got 1 plum to hold but the brds got it. Looking forward to next year. Hoping it gets cold enough to generate a bountiful harvest.

Methley Plum
I am a little disappointed in the growth rate. I expected it to take right off but it seems like it just stopped growing, there are green leaves but the top appears to be dead.

Planting & Care



It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Methley Plum Tree



Step 1: Dig Your Hole


Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Methley Plum Tree.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.



Step 2: Place Your Plant


Next, separate the roots of your Methley Plum Tree gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole


As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Methley Plum Tree again after the transplant is complete.

Pameljit K on Jul 28, 2015
Best Answer: Yes it would have for me but very late frost killed the plums this year but there were a lot of plums on it. The tree did double in size this summer so next year should be great

when is best time of year to plant a plum tree?
A shopper on Jul 31, 2014
Best Answer: I don't think it makes a lot of difference. We have planted fruit trees at all times of the year and they thrive. We follow directions from the grower, fertilize properly and keep them watered. We have two plums, a fruit cocktail, apple, three kind of cherriesand a pear tree. I also have five beautiful ornamental weeping snowfountain cherry trees. They are all beautiful!

Is it self pollinating?
Tiffany S on Apr 14, 2016
Best Answer: I got a plum last year, but since I pruned it to keep it short no blossoms so no fruit. It said in the information that it is self pollinating

Will trees and shrubs look like the photographs?


Most trees and plants on the website are pictured in their mature form. Depending on the product and growth rate, mature development can take years for your plant to resemble the photos. Picture the last time you took a walk in the woods. The young trees were not miniature bonsai versions of mature trees. Instead they were naturally thin and lanky. Young trees are programmed to race toward the light, before the competing vegetation crowds them out. Once established at 10 feet or more, they start developing a wide canopy and shedding lower limbs.


Trimming & Pruning

Most Trees and Shrubs are Pruned Before Shipping... at No Cost to You!


Pruning makes plants appear to be less-full than the ones you may have seen at your local big box garden center. A retailer's goal is to have plants look their best while sitting in the store. Our goal is to have them look the best after you plant them.

Pruned trees and shrubs not only travel better, but become established much quicker. So rather than supporting extra foliage, they put their energy into sending out deep roots. Once that happens, your plants become hardier and quickly explode with new top growth. Above the ground, pruning helps your plants develop a more attractive form.
