St Julien A is a semi-vigorous rootstock for plum trees and closely related trees like damsons, bullaces, gages and mirabelles. You need to graft your own plum tree scion wood onto the rootstock. St Julien A rootstocks will produce a mature tree up to about 4 metres tall and they are suitable for growing half-standard, bush and fan trained trees.
Grafting is pretty straightforward and has a high success rate (all our varieties are grafted). While it is fun to make your own tree, for the amateur grower, grafting is generally most appropriate when you need to replicate an unknown variety or one which is no longer available commercially.
Please note that our guarantee does not apply to your grafted trees, just to the rootstock itself which should always have come into growth before grafting (so you should know before you graft if the rootstock is alive and viable).
