THIS IS A PRE-ORDER. CUTTINGS WILL SHIP IN FEBRUARY 2024.
Ranch - Harsh conditions and poorer soil are no problem for this aptly named varietal. The shorter, stocky shape offers a lower fruiting canopy, and berries are produced on single stems. Earliest Determinate
Elderberries are semi-self-fertile, but for higher yields, it is advisable to plant multiple varieties.
All elderberry are sold with a minimum of 3 sticks with 2+ nodes each. Please see the photos for bundle sizes and examples of what you get.
I got the cold climate 6 pack bundle and 3 extra Adams. Everything survived except 2 of the ones I really wanted..the Ranch ones. I already have some York elderberry trees and I was trying to infuse some different pollinators. I guess that's the chance you take.
I ordered 3 ranch elderberry and 3 Bob Gordon plants and I am extremely unhappy with them. They have no growth on them and I have them planted in pots, followed all directions and still nearly two months later….nothing.
Hi Kay! We are sorry to hear that you’re not seeing more growth. We've reach out to you directly to discuss this issue and try to find a solution. We'd be happy to offer you a refund as well as talk through the issue you're seeing.
The Ranch elderberry starts are all thriving. So are the Pocahontas. However, none of the Wyldewood and Adams starts have shown any life or growth at all. 5 stars for Ranch and Pocahontas. Zero stars for the others.
The bigger cutting sticks have 8 of 10 budding. The medium sized cutting sticks also have 8 of 10 budding, but the 3rd type has only 6 of ten budding. So out of 30 purchased, 1/3 of them don’t look good. I’m not sure what the expected ratio to grow is, but I don’t think this is great.
Shipping was fast and efficient. I ordered 10 comfrey roots and only 2 have shownd leaves so far. The yellow willow bundle of 5 has not showed any signes of growth whereas the other 10 mix are doing well. These roots were all put in the greenhouse in starting pots to prepare for outdoor planting.
I am dissapointed in the 5 yellow willows that are not rooting.
