    The benefits of the Drop ‘N Grow™ bag…

    By growing these trees in burlap bags, the roots grow into the cloth, rather than circling around a pot. This forces these trees to put out thousands of fine hair roots. These roots bring moisture and nutrients into the plants. This means you get a tree that will become established quicker and provide you with superior and faster growth.

    These will be the easiest trees you have ever planted! Simply dig your hole, place the Drop 'N Grow™ bag in the center (burlap included) then use excess dirt to fill the hole. That's it!

Review Title
Both male and female Sea Buckthorn plants arrived looking very healthy. I was very pleased. I am hopeful that these plants will provide the wild life winter food and I will be juicing them as well.

So far so good
Plants arrived quickly after my order. Looked healthy with nice, fresh, green leafing. (They have long roots, so plan on a digging a wide hole.) In the ground, they seem to be fine. No leaf drop, no wilting, no yellowing. Not much sign of new growth yet, but it has only been a month and has been quite cool for this time of year, so time will tell. They were some of the best looking plants I've gotten by mail, so am optimistic.

Only one survived
Only one of the two plants I bought survived and I need a male and female to produce berries. The surviving plant is not growing much, just a little growth near the base of the plant.

Planting & Care

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

Sea Buckthorn Planting Diretions

The Sea Buckthorn (hippophae Rhamnoides 'Askola') is a fast growing, deciduous shrub also known as the “sea berry.” Recommended for USDA growing zones 3-8, it’s very hardy down to -30 degrees and also salt tolerant, making it a great addition to your garden if you live near the ocean. Reaching mature heights of 6-10 feet and a width of 4-5 feet, it’s perfect for small spaces. You’ll enjoy their beautiful silver-green leaves that are commonly used in florists displays and also the drooping orange clusters of berries. The health benefits alone are worth growing these plants. Not only do they contain vitamins A, C & E, but the leaves and flowers can be used for treating arthritis, ulcers, gout and skin rashes. Use the leaves in a tea to help with blood pressure, lowering cholesterol and boosting immunity. While some enjoy eating the berries straight off the vine, the tart and acidic flavor is even more enjoyable in jellies, jams, juices and even wines and liquor.

Seasonal Information: Since these plants are cold hardy, they can be grown almost anywhere.

Location: Low light will decrease your harvest, so be sure to choose a location where your Sea Buckthorn will receive full sunlight. They also require well-draining soil so be sure to amend the soil when planting with compost or peat moss to improve drainage if needed. Avoid using manure as it will provide excessive amounts of nitrogen and stunt the root production. They prefer a pH range of 6 to 7.

Planting Instructions:
1) Dig a hole that is twice as wide as the root ball and equal in depth.
2) Remove your Sea Buckthorn from its container and place it inside the hole, keeping the top of the root ball even with the ground.
4) Ensure that your plant is straight, spread the roots out evenly and begin to backfill the hole with the existing soil, tamping down lightly as you fill to prevent air pockets.
5) Water the soil immediately after planting which will help to settle the soil and remove any additional air pockets.
7) Apply a layer of mulch around your plant to conserve moisture and help keep grass and weeds from growing.

Watering: Keep the soil evenly moist but be sure not to saturate it. Overwatering can cause the leaves to turn yellow and droopy, while under watering will cause them to dry up and turn brown and crisp.

Fertilization: Feed your plants yearly in spring using a well balanced fertilizer such as 10-10-10.

Harvesting: The female Sea Buckthorn needs a male to be able to fruit. One male plant can pollinate anywhere from 6-8 female plants. The males are only ornamental and do not fruit. When your berries are ready for harvesting in late summer and early fall, they will appear firm and have a uniform color. Since the branches have a thorny structure, they can be shaken to help remove berries.

Pests and Diseases: The Japanese Beetle is the most common threat to the Sea Buckthorn, but can be removed by hand or with an organic pesticide.

Pruning: Be sure to prune your plants in late winter to remove any criss-crossing or broken branches. You’ll want to be sure your plant has plenty of airflow and exposure to sun as possible between branches.

Will the Sea Buckthorn do well in the mostly DRY and winter COLD -15° of Colorado?
Richard H on Jul 3, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Sea buckthorn is hardy to -50f. Well draining soil should be fine, just make sure soil doesn't stay dry for more than a couple days, like citrus.
Do either the male or female sea buckthorn you sell have thorns? What is female variety name?
Debbie L on Sep 27, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, if you see the last picture it shows the thorns
I know these add nitrogen back to the soil, would these be safe to plant close to other dwarf fruit trees?
Michelle A on May 11, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would not advise it. These are thorny bushes. Being close to other fruit trees will make it a prickly business to harvest them.
I am in zone 7. Will the plant do well here? Also do I need a male and a female plant so that I get the fruit? What variety of this plant do you sell?
Liza S on Sep 29, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Thank you for your interest in our Sea Buckthorn Plants. These plants can be grown in zones 3-8. You will need a male and female for cross-pollination. The variety is known as the Sea Berry variety.
do you know the cultivar of this sea buckthorn? Also, is it best to plant in the spring or fall? We are in zone 6.
herbgardener on Sep 6, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm not sure about cultivar, but you can plant it spring or fall, it is really easy to maintain plant, just follow planting instructions. I planted it in the last fall and would recommend you to plant it in the fall season for better roots establishment.
