This beautifully wrapped Elder is a pretty, deciduous tree that naturally transforms with every season. Its lush, green leaves unfurl in early spring, an abundance of scented elderflowers blossom in summer and glossy black berries ripen every autumn. The Elder tree will happily grow in any garden or flower pot and it is wonderful for wildlife, especially our honey bees and garden birds.
When you place your order a beautiful Elder tree will be freshly selected by The Present Trees devoted gardeners here, before being wrapped in organza and placed in its luxury parcel.
An exclusively designed card with the story of your Elder tree's ancient symbolism and a full care guide is also enclosed with your gift. In Celtic mythology the Elder is a highly sacred tree and symbolises good health and prosperity.
Your parcel travels in a clear eco bag so the couriers and recipients are aware a living tree is inside it and must be opened as soon as possible.
Every tree is growing in its organic pot filled with top-notch compost, so no green fingers are required, just natural daylight and water. Special nutrients have been to your Elder tree’s compost to create the perfect balance of nourishment. This organic goodness will release into the soil for several months to ensure your tree continues to flourish.
In a few weeks, plant your tree, still in its organic pot, in a large flower pot (one with holes so excess water can drain away) or in a sunny spot in the garden.
Please note: This deciduous tree will naturally lose its leaves in autumn and remain dormant all winter. Fresh new leaves will grow in spring- it’s well worth the wait.
Your Elder tree gift is 45-50cm high, it is quite happy to be lightly pruned in early spring and will reach a height of 2 metres in 10 years, if allowed to grow naturally.
