Item details

Elderberry Bush Fruit Seeds,

Elderberries are used to make Elderberry Syrup, Elderberry Extract & Elderberry Juice. Elderberries health benefits and the many uses of the berries, make growing this bush an excellent addition to your garden or landscape. Want to attract Birds & Butterflies? They absolutely LOVE this bush and the fruits!


NOTE: Elderberry seed germination can be difficult and may have a lower germination success than many other seeds. The seeds will require you to scarify them in hot water for 24 hours and then Stratify them: Keep them warm for 60 Days, 75-80 degrees , then cold for 120 days, 40 Degrees F (refrigeration works well). Sow seed 1/4 inch and watch for sprout in 30 to 60 days. Use soil that drains well, mixing soil with perlite for your starter pots is recommended.


Sambucus Nigra is a genus of flowering plants in the family Adoxaceae.

Zones 3-8, well drained soil, prefers PH of 5.5 to 6.5 but will tolerate a wide range of variations including soil, temperature, texture, and acidity.

Elderberry usually grows 3-6 meters tall and prefers full sun to partial shade. This shrub can and will spread via suckers so it will eventually need more space
and will need trimmed if space is an issue.

A fast growing, hardy, flowering shrub. Growing from multiple stems, the shrub can be shaped into a pleasant bush shape, adding unique landscape features into most any setting. Pruning and fertilizing are not usually necessary but may be preferred, in order to enhance landscape or produce a better fruiting season.

In the late spring, the elderberry boldly shows off large clusters of small, white, showy flowers. By mid summer clusters of small blue-black, or red berries will canopy the shrub.

The fruits can be cooked and used in jellies, jams, cobblers, cakes and toppings ( think ice cream! ). Elderberry wine is another popular use, adding a distinct flavor to your favorite homemade beverage. Many culinary recipes are available online, but we always suggest your own creativity. You might be amazed with what you can come up with!

At $30.00+ a gallon, homemade stains are more popular than ever and elderberry will deliver a unique purple/burgundy color that can be mixed with other natural stains (Black walnut etc..) for custom blends.

For the real naturalists out there, try your shot at making perfumes and confectioneries using elderberry flowers!

Folklore and Native American culture add even more life to the use and history of this "now a days" overlooked shrub. It was used to make wooden instruments, to invoke the "music faeries" and other spirits. It was used for medicine, food, drinks, oils and dyes. It was used in ceremony and was considered by many to be a gift. A plant that deserves respect!

Are Elder Berries good for you? Absolutely! Although the plant itself is toxic, containing traces of cyanide in the branches, leaves, and twigs, the berries are perfectly safe (after being cooked) and boast a host of vitamins and minerals, including, but not limited to the following.

Iron, potassium, phosphorous, and copper, as well as vitamins, such as vitamin A, vitamin B, and vitamin C, proteins, and dietary fiber.
