How to Grow Elderberry.   York is the variety of elderberry I suggest (there are many) because it has the largest berry and is self fertile; it doesn’t require cross pollination to produce fruit.  Use a 10 gallon pot and keep the plant trimmed and neat.  It will send up shoots from the root so you’ll soon have a potful.  Harvest the berries when ripe and dry them, freeze them, or make them into a tincture.  To make a tincture, soak them in vodka, strain off the liquid and sweeten with honey.  This is now shelf stable and needs no other preservation.
