Our elder tree
We were pleased to work with the residents of Park View apartments to prune our lovely elder tree today. The aim was to reduce the size of the tree, but to make sure that the tree continues to be a superb source of food for Nursery Row Park’s bird and insect life. We also add humans to this, as we would like to continue to harvest the elderflowers to make our famous Nursery Row Park Elderflower Cordial! We worked with the our Southwark Parks & Open Spaces department, and the Urban Forester, as well as the residents to agree the plan. We have used the cuttings to bolster our dead hedge in the Community Orchard.
