For anyone interested right now in February. Foxgreen farm has Sea Buckthorn plants ready to be shipped. It is a good time of the year in warmer parts of the country to set these out. http://form.jotform.us/form/42434074098153

For anyone wondering, is it a certain variety, or just run of the mill seaberry?

I'm confused. The seabuckthorn I know (H rhamnoides) never looks like that picture with shiny yellowish bark...

Hi, They are run of the mill, unsexed Hippophae rhamnoides. Propagated from seed of Chinese origin. Specifically they are Hippophae rhamnoides ssp. sinesis. While not a varietal, they are the most widely planted type in the world. The color of the bark might be just the photo not sure. Here is another. I have about 60 or so ready to go. The next time they will be available will be March/April after the ground thaws.

If I literally just didn't order 3 star of Altai sea berries just before I initially saw this post I'd be all over it. Gonna see how well they fit in with my forest garden, and how much space I have left after everything leafs out and I might have to add some more.

Thanks Blake and good luck with the ones you purchased. It has been my experience the varietals offered are rooted cuttings (the only way to propagate them) and, as such do not have heavy root systems. That means they need careful nurturing initially since there is no energy stored in a thick root system. If you know of anyone who might want some of these let them know. They have heavy root systems and can draw off of them while the newer roots begin to form. Just another hint. The plants are often marketed as nearly pest free. Not so. While they are not assaulted by too many insects, june bugs and japanese beetles can do damage. If you happen to notice eaten leaves but do not see any bugs, it is June bugs. They burrow into the ground during the day (you will see the holes in the ground) and feed at night. This is especially true the first year since the plants are "stressed" being newly planted and produce chemicals in the leaves which attract the bugs. Why(if you are interested )? The stressed leaves have an increased amount of protein in them due to the stress and that is something the bugs like a lot.

Hi Tina, Yes the coupon expired on Feb 10. It was a scheduled to do that on February 10th. In just a minute I will extend it through the end of February to give you the opportunity to use it. Sorry for any frustration when ordering. Thanks - Tom
