Elderberry with Soils

R280.00

Elderberry Plants needs loamy to sandy soil with good drainage to thrive. Soil with a pH level of between 5.5 and 6.5 is optimal.

 

Before planting your bush, add your berry mix and volcanic rock dust (which contains organic minerals and trace elements to boost soil health and increase important micro-organisms) close to the surface.

 

Gently take your plant out of the pot and plant it level with the ground. The plant will not do well if planted too high or too deep in the ground.

 

Always plant to the same level as in the pot you bought it in.

 

The Elderberry Soil Kit Contains:

 

One Elderberry Plant

 

Berry Mix

 

Volcanic Rock Dust

 

Pine Bark Mulch

 

Our Ultra Slow Berry Fertiliser is an optional extra. 1 level teaspoon per plant twice a year is all the berry plants require.

One bag of fertiliser will be enough for any 4 berry plants for a year!

 

 

Elderberry Trees are easy to grow. They require slightly acidic soils and therefore our soil kit will ensure the plant grows to it’s full potential.

 

Dig a nice big hole of at least 50cm wide and 50cm deep. Fill with lots of organic matter and at the top of the top of the soil mix in a bag of Berry Mix and one bag of Volcanic Rock Dust.

 

Once planted cover the soil with a thick layer of Pine Bark Mulch and as it decomposes it adds acidity to the soil. Replace the mulch every 3-4 months, but keep it about 20 centimetres away from the stem of the tree. This will keep weeds away and prevent the soil from drying out too much.

 

Mulch also keeps the soil from becoming too hot in the Summer months
