Plant Information

Top Tips

To get a great display of fresh, dark leaves, cut back to ground level each year in early spring and apply a 5-7cm (2-3in) mulch of well-rotted garden compost or manure around the base.

Care Guide

  • Sambucus will grow in most soild, as long as they are not waterlogged.
  • To plant, water well, then dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
