Recently I bought a Black Doris plum tree and have planted it in our Wellington property. I realise now that it needs another suitable plum tree nearby to pollinate and I am wondering what the best choice might be.
The label suggests Sultan but some other research I have done offer other suggestions – these include Billington, Elephant Heart and Santa Rosa.
Could you advise please and also let me know if I can purchase a pollinator tree in Wellington?

Thanks, Liz

Hi Elizabeth, Not sure what is left over at this time of the year in our stores, you would need to check at either Plimmerton or Miramar. Lots of confusing information around, it is more about a variety that will flower at a similar time quite a few do do this but can vary a little in different regions. Doesn’t necessarily have to be on same property, sort of approx. within 15-20 metres.

Thanks the Palmers Team
