Treat someone special to our Sloe Bush Gift, a native tree cherished for the abundance of sloe berries it produces. This native tree is a favourite among Gin lovers and jam and jelly-makers. 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.

Culinary friends and family will adore our Sloe Bush. This gift rewards its owner with a bounty of delicious berries. Nothing can beat the feeling of picking homegrown berries in October for sweet sloe gin or jelly and jam-making. Sloe Bushes are the first to blossom, with immaculate, white flowers arriving as early as February well before any leaves. Wildlife can’t resist the delicate fragrance and birds happily nest within the dense branches.

Have someone in mind? Great. Just click ‘Add to Basket’ to write a message in one of our personalised cards and choose a day for delivery. We’ll handle the gift-wrapping.

Nicely packaged in a hessian bag. Lovely gift

This was a gift sent to my brother. He said what a good idea. Great for the birds and even better for sloe gin.

Hi Catherine, thanks for the lovely review! We hope your brother (and the birds) enjoy the new Sloe Bush Gift :D

Thd product was purchased as a birthday gift for a family member who enjoys gardening cooking and drinking. So I decided to purchase the Blackthorn Sloe tree as a good compromise for all three. He loves it!

Hi Lori, this review made us smile! It's great to see you can satisfy all three hobbies with just one tree. We hope he enjoys looking after the tree and creating lots of delicious concoctions with the berries :)
