1 Elderberry plant (Quart)
WE DO NOT SHIP TO CALIFORNIA!!!!!
Growing elderberries is not all that difficult. They can tolerate different conditions like poor soil or overly wet areas. One thing growing elderberries cannot tolerate, however, is drought. When planting elderberry bushes, you should note that the berries will grow on the bushes the first year you plant them. Just remember that the berries will do better the second year. Elderberry planting is done best in well-draining, loamy soil. Sandy soils should be improved by adding a few inches (5 to 10 cm.) of organic matter. When elderberry planting, make sure to allow for cross-pollination. Therefore, two or more cultivars can be planted near each other. Plant them one meter apart (3 ft.) in rows that are four to five meters (13 to 16.5 ft.) apart.
Depending on variety and conditions, they can grow from 10′ to 20′ tall, but can be pruned and kept much smaller. They do best in gardening zones 3-8. Elderberries prefer rich, moist soil that is well drained, but can tolerate many different growing conditions.
