Availability Available Nov to March


Sambucus nigra or Black Elder is a fast growing, deciduous, bushy shrub with an upright growing habit. It has mid-green, fern like foliage. In the summer, May to June, it produces musk-scented white flowers which are then followed by glossy black fruit in August. Sambucus nigra can grow pretty much anywhere and in any conditions, with the exception of sandy soil! It is great for use as a garden hedge, country hedge, border or  screen. It is a hardy plant as it can withstand colder weather and it is able to cope in exposed, windy areas including coastal locations. It doesn't require full sun, however if you are growing it for the fruits, the more sun, the better the crop will be. Due to the fruits, it brings great wildlife value too.
