Victoria plum in flower in the National Fruit Collection, Kent, on 28 March 2017

 

My standard Victoria plum has flowered first this year and is in full flower today the 28th March a whole month earlier than last year! I live in the Vale of Clwyd, Denbighshire, north east Wales.
The Opal, Jubileum, Denbigh plum and Ontario are all close to opening, Marjorie’s Seedling is about a fortnight off flowering.

Victoria plum in flower, though not full flower, at the National Fruit Collection Brogdale (above). Dates of flowering for Victoria plum last year were: 10% of flowers 10 April; full flower 14 April; so about two weeks in advance this year in Kent: see here
