Does anyone know of any areas in HOP or FH where sloe berries are growing?

sorry - I must be slow- what are sloe berries?

You use them to make Sloe Gin and superb Homemade Wine among other things. They look a bit like blackcurrants but are about 2-3 times the size. I'm sorry I don't know where there are any local supplies.

I think there are some at the Perry Vale end of Perry Hill, but I'm not a 100% positive. I have a friend who is a great sloe gin brewer and will check with him.
