Planting an elder near your house is said to keep the devil away & warn off witches but if you don’t believe in such things plant it because of its beautiful feather like leaves and scented flowers. A highly diverse shrub with the masses of cream coloured flowers making delicious white wine and cordials while the deep purple-black sour berries that ripen in late summer/ early autumn make irresistible red wine, jams and pie fillings. The flowers and berries are also mildly poisonous if ingested raw so be sure to cook them before tucking in.
Please note: all our trees are 20 – 40cm in height, depending on the time of year they may arrive bare or with browning leaves. This is completely normal and they will perk back up in the warmer weather. Our cell grown saplings can be planted all year round if given the right care and attention.
