After flowering animated bees pay a visit which adds movement and life to your garden and they do the important job of pollinating the pretty flowers which transform into impressive fruit.

A traditional favourite

Shropshire Plum Damson is the epitome of northern English damsons, with a particularly deep flavour and so many uses in the kitchen, from stewing, reducing and even eating fresh.

Shropshire Prune grow well in damp climates so definitely worth growing when you live in areas of the UK that get heavier rainfall.

Harvest Shropshire Prune in early autumn to make jams and preserves and to create satisfying puddings as we go into autumn.

The perfect pollinating partner

Oullins Golden Gage plum grows well in the cooler climates of Britain so makes a great partner to Shropshire Plum Damson.

The fruit is a large generous-sized gage. It has a particularly warm golden hue, with red blushes – a treat to the eyes as well as the tastebuds.

Pick Oullins Golden Gage to eat fresh or prepare in the kitchen. Eaten fresh, the flesh is sweet, having imbibed a great flavour after ripening in the sun. For cooking and baking we suggest you pick them when they are firm to the touch.
