Sea Buckthorn

Sea Buckthorn is a shrub that produces attractive berries high in vitamin C.

While we can't confirm claims that the berries are effective in treating various ailments, many people believe consuming the berries helps with arthritis, infections, and asthma, among other things.

Because Sea Buckthorn plants have attractive pale silvery-green leaves, dense branches, and large thorns, people like to grow them in ornamental hedges or as a first row in a shelterbelt.

This species is also known as one of the more salt-tolerant species for those with saline soils.

Very popular with permaculture types who use the nitrogen fixing properties of this plant to benefit other nearby fruits.

Note: these plants typically reach maturity and make their sex easily known (females producing fruit) in their 3rd or 4th year of growth. Our seedlings are too young to identify their sex.

Bracted Honeysuckle is a shade loving shrub that is distinguishable from other honeysuckles by its square stem and pointed leaves. Native to most of North America, this honeysuckle is found along swamps, rivers, riparian zones and moist wooded areas.

If you have a erosion control project in mind, consider Bracted Honeysuckle.
