Let us introduce you to the Elder Tree- this beautiful native tree can often be found in the shrub layer of UK forests. Throughout the year it brings joy to the forager and nature crafter offering berries for syrup, flowers for cordials, leaves to repel bugs and a very unique wood that can be used for a whole range of craft items.
We love the Elder Tree and here are just a few ways to get more familiar with it and begin to understand why.
