The Elder is a small shrub like tree that is native to most of Europe. The flowers and the berries are both used to make a variety of drinks and tonics. They are widely cultivated and grown for their pretty highly scented clusters of creamy flowers in early summer and their blue-black berries in autumn. Elders are easy to grow and tolerating semi shade are a useful addition to gardens and hedgerows. They are helpful to birds and butterflies and fallen fruit will help feed our little wildlife creatures.

The tree is watered before being carefully packed by one of our experienced staff on site. It comes in a cardboard box lined with straw. (We try to use as much recycling material as possible) The box is addressed to the customer or a specified name and address and sent out overnight delivery to arrive on requested dates.
