Elder (Sambucus nigra)
With its soot-dark fruits and aromatic blossoms, elder is the embodiment of summer. Within folklore it is said that placing an elder outside your home would ward off the devil.
Typically it can be found in woodland, scrub and wasteland. Mature elder trees have a maximum height of 15 metres and a maximum lifespan of 60 years.
Our trees are planted, grown and cared for on site. This means, once the seeds are delivered to us we plant them, establish them in our polytunnels and then harden them off. The trees you are delivered have been with us since seed and we look after them until the moment they leave.
Every tree is handpicked and packaged with the utmost care and attention to ensure your trees are delivered fighting fit to help against climate change.

Your happiness is our business and that is why we individually check every single tree that we send out. If you have a concern about your tree, please get in touch with us within 7 days so that we can diagnose the issue. Very rarely, we might ask you to send the tree back to us in secure packaging to help us identify the issue but often we can identify the issue with photographs.
