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.
Estimated Shipping Time: Most orders ship immediately. As noted on the website, some items are seasonal, and may only ship in spring or fall. Once your order is shipped, you'll receive an email with a tracking number.

Customer Reviews & Photos
John and Adams Elderberry
Starting to come out of dormancy. One is a bit farther along than the other.
It arrived in great health. As soon as these storms are over I’m going to plant it. Love elderberry pie! Thank you
love this company
I had my first shipment damaged and after sending pictures of the mess, fast growing trees quickly resent the order no questions asked. Thank you! Ill always buy trees here! So far the plants are dormant, but i'll let you know this spring how they are doing!!!
5 stars for customer service
My elderberries arrived completely crushed, broken and the pot partially dumped. They were badly packaged. The Customer Service lady had a new pot sent to me ASAP. It arrived undamaged. Because of their customer service I will buy more plants from them.
I purchased two plants and they both arrived in very good condition. I planted them within a couple of days and they looked better and better each day. Currently they appear to be thriving.
