These are current, as of June 19,2010 photos of the plants.
Sunny Seabuckthorn (dead)
Golden Sweet Seabuckthorn
Unsexed Seabuckthorn Plant (purchased plant)
Orange DeLight Seabuckthorn
The plants are generally healthy. There have been a couple of hours on a few days where the foliage has been droopy. This shouldn't have been because of moisture problems, in fact, it seemed to coincide with a over abundance of rain. Pests have not had a problem again. The great suggestion to encourage bird activity was implemented and this may have had a significant effect. There are Ash trees nearby which often are denuded by caterpillars, and I think these birds have helped those to a large degree.
Seaberry / Seabuckthorn Seedling Update
There have been few casualties since the transplant. The following photo shows the 3-4 month old seedlings and while still small, look as robust as such a young plant can look. This is surprising to me. As you may have seen in the previous post, the root structure on the seedlings looked like they would have great stress upon transplant.
