Damsons are hardier forms of plum, making smaller robust trees that are often used for windbreaks or hedging
Common Name: Damson
Cultivar: 'Merry Weather'
Skill Level: Beginner
Exposure: Full sun
Soil type: Well-drained/light, Dry
Rootstock: St. Juliens A, 4-5M
May also be trained on walls and grown as pyramids. Damsons will often crop heavily in soils and positions where larger plums fail, producing abundant rich fruits used for cooking or preserves. Most varieties are very similar and partially self-fertile, yielding well if planted on their own.
As with all trees from the prunus family, the leaves will start to appear autumnal and slightly shabby from mid July on wards. This is not a disease, but is mainly due to this years contrasting weather conditions and will not affect the performance of the tree.
fruiting will usually be improved if there is a compatible partner

The damson tree which I ordered arrived on schedule and well packaged. Seems to be in good condition but cannot comment further until next Spring.
The tree arrived promptly and very well parcelled up. It is a good, strong specimen, with no damage and a well-developed, healthy rootball. Excellent quality overall!
So far so good!
This damson tree was reasonably priced and is a well known variety, it very easy to order and the delivery was quick, I left instructions to leave the tree next to the porch as I may not be home when delivered. When it was delivered it had a note attached stating my request, this was nice to see that someone actually read my request, so well done! I've now put the tree in the ground and will have to wait and see how well it does. But so far so good, thanks for a great service!
