Elderberry Plant Pollination
Elderberry Plants are self-fertile. You will get fruit with only one plant. However, adding an additional Elderberry Plant will drastically increase the size of your crop.
Planting & Care
1. Planting: For the best berry production, select a spot with full sun (at least 6 hours of sunlight) and well-drained soil.
Once you have the location, dig a hole three times as wide as the root ball and just as deep. Place your shrub in the hole and make sure that it’s level with the ground and backfill the hole. Once you’ve finished this process, give your Elderberry a long drink of water and mulch around the base.
2. Watering: Keep the soil moist but not oversaturated. Typically, you'll water once or twice weekly. If you're not sure when to water, simply check your surrounding soil about 3 inches down - if it's dry here, it's time to water your shrub.
3. Fertilizing: It’s best to fertilize early in the spring before new growth starts to emerge, then again after your berry harvest. Use a well-balanced, general all-purpose fertilizer like f10-10-10.
4. Pruning: Pruning will help increase your crop and keep your bushes healthy. After your berry harvest, prune spent canes back to promote the growth of new ones.

Customer Reviews & Photos
I love fast growing trees. This is my 3rd purchase.
The plants were packaged well and arrived in good condition. Received two plants with the root balls connected. One was a little under developed but he’s making it so far with a little extra TLC.
The plants arrived and were healthier than some I have bought in town. I planted them and they are doing great. I believe it is a bit hotter here so I made sure they did not get thirsty the first couple of weeks. I love the fact that you sold two varieties together!
I ordered my elderberry plant and received it by the end of the week. It’s mid August here in Texas and has been really hot and dry here so I kept the plant in a more shaded environment, but this morning planted it in the ground. There are two plants as advertised in the 2 gallon pot and they are both very healthy. I am looking forward to being able to pick my own elderberries from my plants cared for with love and attention.
