Elder Trees

Elder grows very quickly and is adaptable to most soil conditions. Once the elder produces its signature white flowers, which are great for making cordials and providing a home for insects, like aphids, ladybirds and moths. After this, the plant produces small berries which are a favourite of birds and winemakers alike.

Elder is an aggressive plant once it gets going and shouldn’t be used for a mixed hedge, and generally looks better when it is allowed to grow naturally.
