Generalities European black elderberry
The European black elderberry develops like a shrub. Growing they develop a round-shape shrub. European black elderberry isn't an evergreen; during the spring it assumes a white colouring; the adult species are medium in size and reach 4,5 m in height.

Exposure European black elderberrySole pieno
For a balanced development, it is best to position the the European black elderberry in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. The European black elderberry plant can be grown in the garden throughout the whole year. It doesn't fear cold weather and it bears very harsh minimum temperatures.Seeing that the foliage of the aromatic plants is used for alimentary needs, we advise paying attention to the use of insecticides and anticryptogamics: letís use only those for agriculture and letís follow very strictly the lacking period written on the label before harvesting these plants.

Watering European black elderberryTenere Umido
We suggest watering pretty often and regularly, with 2-3 glasses of water ; we should always wait for the soil to be clearly dry between one watering and the other. During this time of year usually it is necessary to irrigate every 2-3 weeks . A great part of the aromatic plants are used fresh; during the spring and in the summer it is possible to harvest a good quantity of them, to conserve dehydrated or frozen, to use them during the cold months.

Treatments European black elderberry
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Soil European black elderberry
We recommend cultivating these plants in a slightly humid, not too drained substratum.
