My absolute favourite tree gift for welcoming a new baby, christening, a baptism, or a naming ceremony.
Perfect for a new home, a marriage, a birthday…every home should have one!
The rowan tree’s berries, high in vitamin C, can be used to make rowan jellies to accompany savoury dishes; favoured by my mother-in-law and favoured by me.
Traditionally rowan trees were planted outside houses to protect homes from spirits and guard away negative enchantment. You will often find them planted in churchyards and are now widely planted as a street tree because they are so lovely.
