Elderflower Harvest 2018

Elderflower Harvest 2018

We need your Picking Power!

After a challenging winter the sun has finally put his hat on and come out to share in the good times of Summer, and with him he brings an abundance of Elderflower.

So get ready as we are calling you to kindly roll up your sleeves and take to the English hedgerows to help us pick another bumper crop of Elderflowers, so that we may continue to make you your lovely Elderflower Cordial and Elderflower Pressé.

Some simple but important things to know…

We pay £2.50 per kilo, for your lovely Elderflower. We like elderflower heads, so no stalks please, and they need to be fresh so please deliver the flowers on the same day you picked them because they go brown very quickly and become unusable.

You’ll need…

All you need is a bin bag to put the flowers in and some good walking boots. We advise you to wear long trousers so you don’t get stung by nasty nettles.
