Prunus Spinosa – Blackthorn

Blackthorn is a shrub with long sharp thorns often found in hedgerows. It stands out in early spring with masses of white flowers which appear before the leaves. It grows in a wide variety of soils with the exception of very wet conditions.

The famous Shillelagh Stick (or cudgel) was made from locally grown blackthorn. The sticks were smeared with butter and placed up a chimney to be cured and the bark was left on to add to its toughness. It was traditionally used as a weapon to settle “gentlemanly disputes”.
