Elderberry

from 2.00

Elderberries are easy to propagate by cuttings. Simply stick a cutting in weed free, fertile soil while it is dormant. Plant elder cuttings at 3-12" deep and mulch them. You can plant them in fall or spring. They will be nice healthy plants after one year.

Cuttings are 6-12". They have one pair of leaf nodes at the top. This is all that is needed for an elder cutting to root.

Varieties (all our varieties are sambucus canadensis):

Wild Elder- Native sambucus canadensis. Productive, vigorous plants. Berries are not as large as some cultivated selections, but they make a lot of fruit and are great pollinators.

Bubby- A chance seedling we planted at Bubby's house. It is self-pollinating and bears unbelievable amounts of fruit every year.  Able to bear fruit on new wood.

Scotia- Large berries, extremely vigorous plant. Needs a pollinator and bears fruit on one and two year old wood only. Old variety originating from Nova Scotia.
