Seabuckthorn Seeds

Seabuckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides)

Seabuckthorn fruit is said to have 30 times more vitamin C than oranges! These plants are heavy producers to boot! Seabuckthorn is a wonderful choice for a permaculture landscape as an edible perennial with nitrogen fixing properties.

* Seabuckthorn is a dioecious plant, meaning it takes both a female and male plant to produce fruit. With these seeds you get a 50/50 chance at each! *

 GROWING INSTRUCTIONS

- Soak seeds for 24 hours. Follow 90 days cold, moist stratification. For more information on stratification, check out our article "How To Start Your Tree Seeds".

*If you are doing the cold period in your fridge, please check on your seeds. 90 days is an estimate & they may sprout sooner.*

- Plant stratified seeds in deep pots or a nursery bed using standard potting soil. Heat mats are NOT required & can hinder germination!

- Protect young tree seedlings from slugs, cutworms & rodents. Slugs especially can eat primary leaves as soon as they come up, so be vigilant!
