Looking after your Sloe Tree (Prunus spinosa)

PLEASE NOTE SLOE TREES ARE DECIDUOUS SO DON’T BE ALARMED IF YOUR TREE DOES NOT HAVE ANY LEAVES YET

Sloe (also known as blackthorn) is a native hedgerow tree. It will reward you with spring flowers and autumn berries for many years to come.

While you could keep the plant in a pot, it will grow better if you plant it out, and will not need watering except perhaps if there is a very dry summer in its first year. These are native trees and even when young are hardy. In their dormant leafless state, they can be kept cold and damp either indoors, or in a shed or porch until you are ready to plant.

Long term you might decide to prune the plant into the shape suitable for your garden. You can leave as a large bush, or you can remove the lower branches, so it becomes a little tree. Why not clip it back just before the flower buds open, and bring the prunings inside to open in a vase? The white flowers on the dark bare branches are one of the first signs of spring.

Sloe berries make delicious sloe gin and jellies.

Problem solving: Sloe bushes are very easy going and grow well in a variety of soils and positions. They are completely frost hardy but it’s probably best to wait until the spring to plant out your young sapling. Choose a well-drained sunny site for the best berries and remember to water in well and for the first few weeks after planting.
