In the wet tropics every organic garden and their dog (so to speak) has elder bushes. But they don't taste as good as the wild ones in New Zealand, which led me to researching and discovering there are different cultivars, and so this one must be a dud >_<
I BOUGHT a plant that was sent through the mail, (feeling rich one day) supposedly is a European variety (unnamed) so hoping to repopulate/overpopulate the rampant supposedly american variety that has helped establish our gardens.
Do you know about the safety of feeding the leaves to ruminant animals specifically goats? They tend to refuse foods that are not good for them, but always love the elder leaves when offered.
The sample pages of your book are goooood :) Do you offer it in ebook format, or have a stockist in Oz?
One more question!!! Do you know an elder stockist in Oz with named varieties?? (I have read of a pink flowering elder, this sounds lovely.)
