You're invited: Fruit & Nut pre-order pick up weekend will be April 27 & 28, 2024 (from 10 - 2 pm)!
One of the easiest fruits to grow, Elderberry is deep, delicious medicine both as flower and fruit. Quickly growing 10+ tall, elderberries are phenomenal habitat for beneficial birds and pollinators. We see elderberries thriving in diverse soils and sun, tolerating more moisture than many other shrubs. We share three unique cultivars: ‘Marge’ hails from Europe sharing larger, sweeter and more medicinal than average fruit on second year wood. ‘Scotia’ is often 12+ feet with exceptionally large and sweet fruit. ‘York’ is large, prolific and the standard for elderberry production.
Please purchase trees & tree kits separately from non-tree items. Also on orders of 25+ trees, enjoy a 10% discount automatically applied to your cart!
