Blackthorn Tree Gift

Prunus spinosa donum


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

Give a loved one our Blackthorn Tree Gift, treasured for its distinct natural beauty and the bounty of sloe berries it produces. Ancient Celts used the sprigs of this native tree to decorate bridal chambers, making this a thoughtful gift for weddings as well as October celebrations.

This Blackthorn Sapling arrives with a slender trunk and lush, green leaves. It has black bark and dense, spiny branches. The fragrant, white flowers that arrive in February are a welcome treat, bringing life and colour to an otherwise bare landscape. When this tree matures, it grows delicious sloe berries that are ripe and ready to be picked every October for making sweet Sloe Gin or cooking. Our Blackthorn Tree offers something everything season so there isn’t a bad time to get one.

Order yours before the February blooms or autumn berries! Just click ‘Add to Basket’ to choose a personalised card and a day for delivery. We’ll handle the gift-wrapping.
