Side shoot of Growing Elderberries discussion

Has anyone tried growing them from seed? Have not had any luck yet with cuttings or starts. I got three different types of seeds. But looks like I got them too late to start this year.

Says I need to refrigerate for 60 days before planting. That means I can't put them outside until almost August. They will never handle our winter starting that late.

    I had some cutting that seemed like they were going to make it and then they were trampled by some kids that were not familiar with my property 😮‍💨. That was the closest I have come to being successful. I'd also be interested to hear of seed success stories or tips.

    @vickeym I'm trying to start them from seed. I hear it's not so easy. So far...nothing.

    I don't remember what I tried before planting them.
