I bought a packet of 'hippophae rhamnoides' seabuckthorn from Richters last December. I put them in damp sand in the refrigerator as they said and after a monthe a few began to I removed them (the sprouts) from the sand and potted...and continued to do this over the next month until now. They ALL died eventually from what I thought at first was damping off but now I wonder if I took them out of the climate that caused them to sprout and put them in a pot at a warmer temperature...sometimes our house is as cold as the refrigerator but mostly quite a bit above 40 degrees. So, I am wondering if they would have survived if i had kept them at the temperature they were at when they sprouted or if they damp off really easily...or what
Is anyone growing them successfully from seed? thanks in advance for any input
