Seabuckthorn (Hippophae Rhamnoides)

Order now for delivery end of October.

Seabuckthorn is one of the most nutritious fruits known being very high in vitamin C. It grows on a fast growing shrub that is very thorny, the shrub produces 4-5 metres of upright thick branches which produces fruit with a deep red/orange colour. Ripens at the end of August and a pollinator is recommended.

Berries are not palatable raw and are best processed into a syrup or used to make a jelly. Describing the jelly taste is quite difficult but it is citrusy and slightly tropical. Berries have a thin skin so can be difficult to pick without them getting squished. The trick is to cut fruit bearing sprigs whole and freeze them, the berries can the be easily shaken off.

Male Or Female?
We stock both male and female varieties of seabuckthorn, you can choose between them using the 'Type' tab above the 'Add To Cart' button. Varieties are:

Male: Pollmix

Female: Askola

These plants are 2 years old and typically 30/40cm high

Thanks for the 2 Sea Buckthorn plants I ordered. It took a while but they are here now. I was a bit disappointed, that the female plant was strong and healthy but the male plant was only 1/3 of the size of the female plant and I am a bit worried it may not make it, very flimsy for the money I paid for. I have already 2 x4 year old plants and dont know weather they are male or female and I need pollinators. If the male does not survive I am set back another year for fruit. Thats just a little concern of mine. Thanks for listening. Linda Jagobin

Hi Guys, can I plant these in a container(s) and can I just use ordinary compost or do I add salt maybe? thanks,Karinne

Hi Karinne. Sea buckthorn can be grown in a container but you will need a large pot as they are a very vigourous plant which needs plenty of room. I would say containers are not ideal for this type of plant but if you have no other option it has a good chance of success.

A while ago I purchased 1 male & 1 female sea buckthorn from you. These are growing well. I now wish to add 4 more female but see that you are out of stock. Will you get anymore in time for planting this autumn?

How old are the sea buckthorn plants you are selling? I have 2 plants for about 4/5 years. Never fruited. Probably female. Want to get one male and one female, just in case. How long for the new plants to be able to pollinate? Thanks!
Answered by Andrew
on October 25th, 2016
Hi Linda. These Seabuckthorn are 2 years old and normally they will pollinate the year after they are put down.

Hi Kristina. Sorry for the late reply. Yes we will send a male and female plant when two are ordered. I hope this helps. Andrew
Asked By William Keegan

I have a Sea Buckthorn for a number of year, but I've never had any berries on it. I presume I need a pollinator. How would I know whether I already have a male or a female plant and how I should best go about getting berries?
Answered by Andrew

Hi William. How old is your buckthorn? They can take 3-4 years to bear fruit and if grown from a fruit can take even longer. I include a link to an excellent article that should answer your question better than I can:
