Flowering Months
Elderberry require very little pruning except for general maintenance and shaping in winter. However, if they become too tall after a few years, they will also respond well to hard, restrictive pruning.
Grow Sambucus in any moist but well drained soil in full sun or dappled shade, plants will also survive on poor, chalky soils.
