Sloe to flower

The Blackthorn/Sloe (Prunus spinosa) plants in my native hedgerow are also in flower at the moment. These shrubs were only planted in December 2006 and were bare root stock. They didn’t flower last year but obviously they’ve now had a year of growth and are flowering this year.

Hopefully we’ll get lots of fruit and can produce Sloe gin 🙂
