Packed with tons of vitamin C, the first thing you notice about the numerous berries flooding your tree is their striking, vivid color. Hanging in clusters like bright-orange grapes, the Sea Berries themselves complement the silvery-green foliage that surrounds them. Standing out in the landscape with distinctive visual beauty, the Sea Berry reaches impressive heights of up to 10 feet.

No wonder the Sea Berry is one of the most widely planted varieties throughout the orchards of Europe.

Buckthorns in the Bay Area
Buckthorn is a very northerly plant that has a chance to grow in the Bay Area of California. Mine are not doing exceedingly well, growing slowly and not producing any berries yet in their second year. I am protecting them from too much sun, but am not sure the claying soil in my garden is optimal.

Planting & Care

It's Easy to Plant & Care for Your Sea Buckthorn

Step 1: Dig Your Hole

Select a site with full to partial sun and moist or well drained soil for your Sea Buckthorn.

First, dig each hole so that it is just shallower than the root ball and at least twice the width.

Then loosen the soil in the planting hole so the roots can easily break through.

Use your shovel or try dragging the points of a pitch fork along the sides and bottom of the hole.

Planting & Care

Step 2: Place Your Plant

Next, separate the roots of your Sea Buckthorn gently with your fingers and position them downward in the hole.

The top of the root flare, where the roots end and the trunk begins, should be about an inch above the surrounding soil.

Then make sure the plant is exactly vertical in the hole.

To make it just right, use a level.

Step 3: Backfill Your Hole

As you backfill the hole, apply water to remove air pockets.

Remove debris like stones and grass and completely break up any dirt clumps.

Water your Sea Buckthorn again after the transplant is complete.

how can I get male AND female plant?
Ilona A on Apr 7, 2015

Is this like a Kiwi plant to which it requires both male and female?
Nic F on Jan 29, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I plant one male plant for every two female plants; you could have even more female plants if the male plant is strategically placed. In other respects it is not like the kiwi: it is a relatively small upright (not climbing) northern plant with quite a bit of salt tolerance. It is native to the Baltic sea and the Gulf of Bothnia.
I have your male Askola buckthorn. Will the Askola pollinate a female Leikora buckthorn?
Scott R on Aug 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it will. Names do not matter, but the growing conditions will. Buckthorn is a plant that likes to grow in places where there is salt in the air from the oceans. Too far inland and hot and the buckthorn wilts.
