    It grows like a weed!

    I can’t believe how much this plant has grown in two years. It has produced after its first year and tripled the harvest our second year. I’m ready to just leave some of the berries for the birds!

    Love this plant

    So impressed with this plant. Bought a 2 gallon and planted last year. Thriving this year with little maintenance! More than triple the buds already and had at least doubled in size. Might have to buy more of these!

    Excellent Elderberry species choices!

    After checking local garden centers for Elderberry plants to grow for purposes of making immunity boosting syrup and wine, I resorted to buying online. Purchasing online makes me nervous, so many scams and rip-offs out there. I ordered the John & Adams plant as well as the Marge. They arrived promptly and in very good condition. One has berries on it! They are planted and doing very well so far; I’m looking forward to next year and the possibility of making a first batch of syrup. I recommend fastgrowingtrees.com!
