What a Great Site!
BlogTitle…..I am talking about GoU not my soggy plot!
Found you yesterday while searching for a named rose on the internet and been sat at computer hours now…well it is far too wet to garden and this is a constructive, educational site … though I could be ironing….
So far I have discovered that one should ask permission of an elder tree before picking anything off it. Perhaps this series of wet, dull months that is supposed to be a growing season , is all my fault..not knowing anything about elders and witchcraft I poisoned a wild one last year. Without asking if it minded. Sorry , so sorry, English gardeners I have brought a curse upon us all.
As soon as it fairs up a little I am going out to find a seedling elder, and pot it in the best of compost, shelter it from the elements, feed it well, tie a pretty bow around it’s pot and say sorry to it’s dead ancestor :)
