Harvesting

Use the leaves, flowers and berries for medicinal and culinary purposes. The berries are collected when ripe and used raw or cooked, or dried whole for use in decoctions, liquid extracts, and tinctures. Harvest the leaf-buds in the early spring for cooking or as a substitute for smoking tobacco. Harvest the flowers in the spring and the berries after they ripen in the fall.

Its nice and saves money, my boss thought i was smoking drugs lol.

Bleedin nutters, you two!

Seriously, thanks for that tip about the uses for haw trees, Nige. WellDone

Even as a kid, I always thought that haws, or the bushes themselves, must be good for something.

Never knowingly underfed

My Dad and his brothers used to eat the leaf buds in the Spring as a snack on the way home from school. He said they tasted "green and a bit sweet".

I think I found some bushes of hawthorn finally and wondered about taking some cuttings, only I need loads and loads of them to keep the wild boar out and I don't think the fire station will be too happy if I nicked most of their hedge for cuttings Monster
