Elderberries can be grown anywhere and in any conditions. The bushes produce large white blossoms with clusters of small black fruit that are easy to pick. Elderberries can cause stomach upset if eaten raw, but when cooked they are perfect for juicing, jellies, jams, wines, and baking. Elderberry flowers can also be picked before they ripen into fruit and used to make elderflower cordial. Elderberries make wonderful liqueur when mixed with gin or vodka in the same manner as sloe gin. A bottle of homemade elderberry liqueur makes a great Christmas gift!
As a native species elderflowers are a recommended support for native birds and butterflies.
Allow 12ft between bushes.
