AGM plants have been through a rigorous trial and assessment programme. They are:
This plant will provide nectar and pollen for bees and the many other types of pollinating insects.
It is included in an evolving list of plants carefully researched and chosen by RHS experts. Divided into 3 groups these lists, linked below, are maintained by a team of RHS staff and are reviewed annually.
'Imperial Gage' is a greenish-yellow, juicy sweet gage that crops reliably. Partly self-fertile and in pollination group 2, but will fruit better with a pollination partner from group 1, 2 or 3. Flowering time is very early so it is subject to frost damage. Fruiting season is around the middle of August
'Sunburst' is a self-fertile cherry with large, sweet, very dark red fruit in midsummer, white spring blossom and good autumn colour
'Tai-haku' is a medium-sized deciduous tree with a broad spreading crown. Young leaves deep bronze-red, later green, to 15cm in length. Pure white, single flowers up to 6cm in width
'Kursar' is a small deciduous tree of spreading habit, with ovate leaves, coppery when young, turning deep orange in autumn. Single vivid deep pink flowers 1.5cm in width are borne in profusion
'Taoyame' is a small, spreading, deciduous tree with coppery young foliage. The single and semi-double, pale pink flowers open from pink buds in mid-spring
'Macrocarpa' is a spreading deciduous tree with lance-shaped, dark green leaves up to 12cm long. Bowl-shaped, very pale pink or white flowers are produced on bare shoots in early spring, followed by velvety, pale green fruit containing edible nuts (almonds)
'Pershore' is a large, yellow plum; a bottling favourite. A self-fertile cultivar; heavy, regular crops are produced in mid August
'Ichiyo' is a small deciduous tree of spreading habit, with ascending main branches and light bronze-green young foliage; flowers double, shell-pink, rounded, borne in pendulous long-stalked clusters in mid spring
'Hanagasa' is a medium, spreading, deciduous tree with double, pale pink flowers on long stems hanging below the branches in mid- to late spring. The leaves turn dark orange in autumn
'Mallard' is a dessert cultivar that produces a medium-sized, red plum with a good flavour and good, regular crops. It has moderate vigour and belongs to Pollination group 1. Cropping time is from mid to late August
