Elder trees are a bit of a phenomenon in gardening circles as they are super pretty flowering trees
that grow rapidly and die back almost as quickly. If the oak tree is the tree that takes its time, the elder tree is the shooting star of trees, showing a wonderful flowery array before burning out quickly. If looked after, elder trees can live to around half a century, although few live this long. Elder trees are also known as elderflower which is recognisable as a flavouring, especially in drinks. However long you manage to keep your elder trees alive, you will get a lot of joy from them and they will keep you coming back for more. They grow well in most soil types and most garden conditions making them perfect for British gardens. Buy now for FREE UK delivery.
