Blackthorn Tree Gift

Prunus spinosa


Next day delivery available, just order before 11am Mon to Thurs.

The Blackthorn Tree has strong Celtic links with protection and any site which grew Blackthorn alongside its sister Hawthorn was thought to be an enchanted area. The Celts often used sprigs of Blackthorn to decorate bridal chambers, as the musky smell produced by the flowers would stimulate the bride's desire for her groom.

The wood of the Blackthorn is a popular material for walking sticks and the berries are often used to flavour Sloe-Gin.

This little fellow is a small shrubby tree and is native to the British Isles.

  • The Blackthorn tree is a small tree and will not grow above 6m in height
