In Celtic mythology the Plum tree is sacred and symbolises hope and happiness.
This beautifully wrapped Wild Plum tree looks stunning in any garden and is treasured for its abundance of pale pink flowers which blossom in early spring. In autumn the deep-red, sweet plums can be eaten straight from the tree!
The Wild Plum tree is organically nurtured here, in The Present Tree’s gardens, where we never use harmful chemicals or pesticides. So when you place your order a Wild Plum tree will be freshly selected by our devoted gardeners before being carefully wrapped and placed in its luxury parcel.
An exclusively designed card with your personal message, the story of the Wild Plum tree's ancient symbolism and a full care guide is also enclosed with your gift. Add an engraved brass plaque (see images above) inscribed with your message so this special gift is always remembered.
Caring for your tree
Every tree is growing in its organic pot filled with top-notch compost, so no green fingers are required, just natural daylight and water. We have added nutrients to your tree’s compost to create the perfect balance of nourishment. This organic goodness will release into the soil for several months to ensure your tree continues to flourish.
Place your Wild Plum tree outside, in its natural environment, even in chilly winter. In a few weeks, plant your tree, still in its organic pot, in a large flower pot (one with holes so excess water can drain away) or in a sunny spot in the garden.
This Wild Plum tree is 55-65cm high, it is quite happy to be lightly pruned in early spring and may reach a height of 3 metres in 10 years, if allowed to grow naturally.
Please note: Your parcel travels in a clear eco bag so the couriers and recipients are aware a living tree is inside it and must be opened as soon as possible.
