A group of us are planning to pick several hundred elderflower heads on Saturday morning, May 14th – weather permitting. We might do a repeat ‘pick’ on Saturday morning, May 21st. We’ve found a location where they’re quite prolific, in the ‘fields’ beyond Elthorne Park, although you’d need wellies to wade through nettles in some places, and a crooked stick to pull down the high branches.
We’ll be following the recipe on here https://westealingabundancew13.wordpress.com/2010/06/11/292/ which we used last year to produce the cordial which went down very well at Hanwell Carnival and will will be selling again at this years Carnival on the 18th June, as well as Pitshanger Party in the Park on the 26th June.
Anyone who is interested in knowing more, or getting involved, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
