Common Alder (Alnus Glutinosa) – Sold in Bundles of 50
50p each + VAT
Common in wet ground, marshes and stream-sides. Rounded leaves are light green. Flowers green catkins (Feb – March) that become black when ripened a year later. Fast growing. Grows to max of 20m. The leaves have shallow irregular teeth and remain on the tree quite late in autumn when they shed and fall.
Due to an unusual bacteria in the tree, the Alder can improve the fertility of the soil and as pioneer species, helps other species around it to colonise and establish.
