More advice about pollination

Please note that our whilst our system takes many relevant factors into account, it is certainly not completely accurate

Pollination between plum species

European Plums, Gages, Damsons, Bullaces, Mirabelles and Cherry Plums can usually cross-pollinate each other provided their flowering times overlap. However none of these species can cross-pollinate with Japanese Plums.
