Sloe (Prunus spinosa)

(Prunus spinosa)

We hope to have more available next season.

Sold out

Order form Large Shrubs Native

The sloe of course, is a much loved and much used native. 

Well known for its masses of white flowers in the spring hedgerows, the sloe is also called blackthorn or white thorn (depending on what time of year it is), and has an ancient tradition of use.

Obviously well adapted to life in the UK, no wildlife garden or hedge should be without one. Much used in the making of country wines and the flavouring of gin.
