there is a old farm not far from me that has dozens of mature hawthorn trees Greg. it won't help you right now but come late summer i can get you all you want. i heard rose hips are good for blood pressure too.

I just bought two hawthorn trees to help, but in while waiting for them to grow I am looking for suggestions for a good hawthorn product that I can buy. Any suggestions Mick or others? I can't wait for my trees to get big and beautiful (and tasty)!
mick i have hawthorn growing wild around old farmland around here. keep a eye out in fall. i bet you have some nearby to you.

I've developed a taste for my hawthorne blend, but I would be a liar if I claimed it was my first choice for recreational sipping.
i almost ordered a hawthorn bush to add to my food forest but they have wicked thorns 2in. long and can tear you up!

I planted a couple of hawthornes but they died. I'm figuring on moving within the year, so I'll try again in my new location, wherever it turns out to be.

Some of the published data show that it was tested and found to be about 85% as effective as the top-selling BP med... Has anyone else had any experience with this plant?
