I am nrand new to the forum so please forgive me if this has already been posted somewhere. Has anyone tried growing elderberries near Saskatoon? I live on an acreage 30km east of the city. The homestead is very sheltered with lots of mature trees but our windbreak surrounding our small field (where I have started our "orchard") was only just planted this past spring using seedlings from Indian Head.
I am just curious about whether I should give it a shot. At $20 a shrub it is a bit more money than I would like to just throw away. I'm barely comfortable paying $5 a plant for seedlings from the university plant sale.
Thanks in advance!
