Your Victoria plum tree is in flowering group 3. It is self-fertile and does not need a pollination partner, but fruiting will usually be improved if there is a compatible partner of a different variety nearby. The following varieties should pollinate this plum tree.
(European plums, gages, damsons, cherry plums, mirabelles, bullaces will usually cross-pollinate if their flowering times overlap.
