‘Marjorie’s Seedling’ is in flowering group 3, and is self-fertile, so doesn’t need a pollination partner. However, the yield may be increased if there’s a compatible tree of a different variety nearby. Flowering in the middle of the blossom season, it can be cross-pollinated with most other plum trees.
