Quick Overview

The Elder Tree has always been considered to be the 'Protective Tree' and its wood was used to make wands to drive out evil. Music played on instruments made of wood from the Elder tree, such as panpipes or flutes, was thought to have the same power as wands and would protect the home from negative influences. Elder trees produce berries in the Autumn and sweet smelling flowers in the Spring. The aroma of the flowers from the Elder tree are said to deter flies from the garden.
Elderberries are still used for making jam, wine and cordial to this day.
Elder tree supplied is 20-40cm tall.

  • Elder trees are native throughout the British Isles, and grow to a maximum of 30ft (9m).
  • Elder trees usually flourish wherever the nitrogen content of the soil is high. Elder trees grow very well in rich neglected ground.
  • Elder trees grow quickly and can colonise an area if not pruned each year.
  • The large instantly recognisable white flower heads of the Elder tree appear in early July followed by a mass of small black berries.
  • Elderberries make excellent wines and jams and are rich in vitamin C.
  • The Elder tree is often found in hedgerows.
  • We do not recommend for Elder trees to be planted in new hedges as they can grow quickly resulting in large gaps once established.
