Sugar plum and gage trees produced to order

We do not stock this variety, but it is available through our custom bud-grafting service.

Propagation is carried out in late July / early August, and the grafted trees would be available for supply in December the following year (approximately 14 months later). You can choose the number of trees and the rootstock(s) you want the trees grafted on.
