Anyone who considers the natural occurrence of a black elder will recognize its remarkable flexibility in relation to suitable site conditions. In the wild, it can be found just as often on humus-rich forest clearings as on lean, rather dry ruderal areas. The wild fruit tree achieves its optimum in the garden at this location:

  • sunny to partially shaded garden area
  • humic soil, rich in nutrients
  • well permeable to water and fresh and moist
  • neutral to slightly alkaline soil pH

In addition to the light and soil conditions, the appropriate distance to paved paths, terraces, buildings and neighboring properties also comes into focus when choosing a location. Since black elder is one of the shallow roots, it also has a considerable urge to spread underground. Therefore, consider a minimum distance of 200-300 centimeters to masonry and paving so that the roots do not cause damage here.
