Sea Buckthorn Seeds

Sea buckthorn seeds are a 50/50 mixture of male and female seeds. To ensure pollination, you need at least one male plant for every six female plants on your property. The plants will produce berries in 3-4 years, and this is when you can differentiate between the male and female plants; the females produce the berries.

Sea buckthorn is a thorny shrub or tree that has a high medicinal and nutritional value. Because of the berries’ high nutritional value, it is also known as a superfood. It can grow up to 20 feet. The plant can spread by rhizomes and seeds. The spacing should be 1 m (3′ feet) between trees and 4 m between rows.

How to Grow Sea Buckthorn

Sea Buckthorn (Hippophae Rhamnoides) is a cold-hardy shrub native to the northern hemisphere. It is a perennial and is hardy in zones 3-8. It prefers well-draining, light, sandy soil with a pH of 6 to 6.7, although it will grow in soils with a pH of 5.5 to 8.3. You will need to grow the plants or start the seeds in a location with full sun, as it cannot tolerate shade at any stage of growth. To increase germination success prior to sowing, you can soak the seeds in water for up to 48 hours. Any seeds that are floating should be thrown away. Press the seeds into sterilized soil, but leave them partially exposed. The seeds require exposure to light to stimulate germination. Keep soil moist but not soggy until the seeds have germinated and have at least two sets of leaves. Transplant the seedlings outside in spring or summer. Seeds can be started outside in the spring to early summer and fall.

Sea buckthorn has a lot of medicinal value and uses. The berries are highly nutritional, contain high levels of antioxidants such as vitamin C and E, and flavonoids, which help to strengthen the immune system and protect you from disease, as well as to improve your heart. It has been used for centuries as a herbal remedy to relieve coughs, to aid digestion, invigorate blood circulation and alleviate pain. The juice is often used as a sweetener for herbal teas, and the berries are usually made into sauces, marmalades, and jellies.
