On the other hand, you could sow some rowan berries and see what nature produces. They would need stratification (a period of cold) in order to germinate.
Rowan berries, together with crab apples or blackberries, make a delicious jelly.
And, whatever about banshees, Rowan is supposed to protect against evil. It was used for making spindles and spinning wheels - thereby maybe preventing idle hands from developing idle thoughts? I've read that medicinally, it can be used to treat sore throats and hoarseness and for diarrhoea, so it might be excellent for those prone to talk b......t!

They are as cheap as chips at NoneSoHardy nursery and other nurseries around the country. 30 cent or there abouts when large quantities ordered so stealing may not be the best option...
