Damson Merryweather is one of the most widely grown of all damsons, and also one of the toughest, thriving in reasonably hostile conditions, hardy throughout most of the UK.

Preferring a sheltered site in well drained but moist soil, Merrweather is self fertile and in flowering group 3. Grown on St Julian A rootstock, which means it will be a semi vigorous plant and can be expected to reach an ultimate height and spread of 3 to 4 metres.
