Sambucus Nigra, Common Elder

50 seeds


Elderberries have long been used for their medicinal benefits. They contain anthocyanins (the antioxidants found in dark berries) in very concentrated amounts.

Elderberry should be cooked and made into syrups, they can also be made into, jellies, jams and pies.

The flowers are SO beautiful and remind me of Queen Anne’s lace, only with way more flowers. Beautiful for bouquets.

Elderberry seeds take patience, in nature, some of the fruit falls off the plant and the seeds are exposed to warm temperatures that slowly turn into cool and then cold.

Spring, summer or early fall is a good time to plant them for emergence the following spring.

This can be stratified as well, by planting the seeds in flats and waiting for 60 days, then put the flat in a plastic bag and then your refrigerator for 120 days or until temps are warm enough to plant back outside.
