Sea Buckthorn vs Kent Strawberry

Hippophae rhamnoides l.

Fragaria ananassa Kent

Sea Buckthorn
Kent Strawberry

Sea Buckthorn is a nitrogen fixing 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.

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

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.

Kent Strawberry is a favourite of urban gardeners and commercial growers. This June Bearing (Short Day) strawberry grows well on the prairies and produces high yields of bright red fruit that bursts with flavour. Great for fresh eating or try them in your next batch of jam or baking.

One of the most cold hardy strawberries!
