So far - not bad
Reviewed By: Phil
Ordered 2 York and 2 Nova in early fall of 2011. They shipped very late - were on back order. I planted in November when they arrived. Lucky that fall and winter were mild and ground was not frozen. All four are growing but I am skeptical that I will see more than a foot of growth this year. $25 a plant seems a little pricey for something so small but if my results end up like most of the reviews here I will be pleased. Definitely pleased that all 4 plants are growing.

Long Time No See
Reviewed By: Richard Conway
I am a native of up state New York, I have been living in Alabama for 25 years, no one down here has herd of elderberrys, I did not know that they could survive in this area, I was searching and found out that Gurney's seed & Nursery carried these trees and they can survive in the deep south, I am excited.... I am just now ordering these trees, and can't wait to finally enjoy this fruit. Thank you Gurney's..

Healthy and doing well
Reviewed By: Robin
Follow-up to a previous review-They were planted last Sept. The elderberries are doing well this Spring. They are leafing out and doing great. We are vastly pleased with them.

A Review of the Elderberry plants received from Gurneyís:
I ordered 2 Elderberry plants (York & Nova) in the fall of 2006 and they were planted shortly after their arrival. During 2007 they grew nicely. I helped them along by watering and giving them a shot of Miracle Grow each week. During 2008, I harvested enough berries to produce one deep-dish pie. (It was delicious.) Last summer they produced 18 pints of berries.
Attached is a picture of the plants now. They are enormous and as can be seen, simply covered with blooms which portends a great harvest. I suspect I shall have plenty to give away. I have them covered with netting to keep the birds off as much as possible. I would have had more last summer except the birds got to the green berries and ate them-probably 15 to 20%. I placed a 6 foot ladder next to them give a perspective of how giant these plants are.
Anyway, 5 bright stars for the Gurney Elderberry Plants!
