Quick Overview

The Blackthorn Tree has strong Celtic links with protection and any site which grew Blackthorn alongside its sister Hawthorn was thought to be an enchanted area. The Celts often used sprigs of Blackthorn to decorate bridal chambers, as the musky smell produced by the flowers would stimulate the bride's desire for her groom.

The wood of the Blackthorn is a popular material for walking sticks and the berries are often used to flavour Sloe-Gin.

This little fellow is a small shrubby tree and is native to the British Isles.

  • The Blackthorn tree is a small tree and will not grow above 6m in height.
  • Blackthorn makes a good hedge which will keep intruders from the garden.
  • The Blackthorn tree is the first tree of the year to come into bloom in February or March.
  • Blackthorn trees provide a safe site for nesting birds many of which will later feast on the Sloe berries.
  • Sapling delivered 20-50cm in height.
