Elder Hedging Plants (Sambucus Nigra)

Elder Hedging Plants (Sambucus Nigra)

Elder Hedging Plants are fast growing and can be planted as a stand-alone tree or as part of a mixed hedgerow. Delightful scented white flowers in spring give way to elderberries that the birds love to eat. Small green summer leaves turn yellow and then brown in the autumn adding beautiful colour to your hedge.

Key features of our Product:

  • Easy to grow as part of a hedge, or as an individual tree
  • For any soil type, easy to grow
  • Full sun to partial shade
  • Hardy and low maintenance
  • Lovely flowers in the Spring
  • Elderberries in the Autumn
  • Very wildlife friendly

Product Details

Elder is a fast grower – growing between 40-60cm per year. They grow to a height of around 15m – but are perfect at around 1-4m tall. We recommend that you trim your elder plants in the late autumn after the elder berries have dropped.

Elder flowers are traditionally harvested for elderflower cordial. Elder provides a wildlife friendly habitat for small mammals, birds and insects. Commonly incorporated as part of a horse friendly hedge.

Simply choose the height of the plants you want to plant now and the number of plants you need.

We recommend 5 plants per metre in a double zig-zag row for a thick hedge, but you can get away with 3-4 per metre in a staggered row if you don’t mind waiting an extra year or two to form a thick hedge.

Keep them well watered – especially in the Spring and Summer in the first year of planting. If you are not sure how many plants you need or which varieties suit your garden please just contact or call us and we will be happy to offer friendly advice!

For best results plant with Rootgrow gel – it increases the growth rate by up to 50% and really helps the plants establish!

Many apologies but due to a change in the DEFRA plant health regulations following Brexit we cannot ship plants to Northern Ireland – we are working on this and hope a solution is found soon!
