  1. What exactly is the difference between the male and female plants? Is it visual? And by 'unsexed' does that mean they aren't selective genders or they don't have a sex yet? If so how do you get male and female? I'd like at least one of each to grow my own sea buckthorn berries for health purposes.

    This page has some photos I took of a female flower. The male flower resembles a purse or clam-shell type form. Most flowers have a pistil and stamen. The pistil has the "eggs" and the stamen has the "sperm". They come together when flowering and produce seeds. Sea Buckthorn plant flowers do not have both the pistil and stamen, they have either one or the other. You still need both to produce seeds and, in this case, they are on different plants. Unlike humans, you cannot tell whether a young plant is either male or female when very young. You have to wait until they are 3-5 years old (total) when they flower to tell which is which. These plants are either male or female. In nature there is about a 70% occurrence of female plants from the seed of these type of plants. These plants for sale have not flowered yet so their sex is unknown. Sexed plants are available online for a much larger cost. Even these plants are for sale for as much as $26.00/plant. I have planted nearly 500 of them so far and will be reporting my results when they are in.

  3. Awesome website. Are you selling on ebay? Richter's is a good source for seeds. They also listed leikora and sexed male plants in their most recent catalog for $8 plus shipping

    1. Thanks for the complement on the website. I am really into Sea Buckthorn and hope it has a very bright future in the US and elsewhere. I am selling on ebay. The prices and quantities are different to some degree. One of the most popular is for a group of 25 plants for $200.00 plus a little for shipping. Make an offer :-) here is the link, http://r.ebay.com/TNYlkT

    2. Richters I will add to the post I did recently. I did look at the site and all the plants I can see for sale are "Sold Out", The seeds are not available in small quantities either. I don't understand that really, maybe an email to them or call would clear that seed issue up. Thanks again for the interest and taking the time to send a comment! -- Tom

  4. Do you also sell cuttings? Also, I think people need to know, these need sun. Sun sun sun. They will survive all kinds of weather as long as they get good sunlight.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Panoog- Selling cuttings is a great idea. I hope to be doing that when I have enough sexed plants to be able to offer a specific choice to the buyer. You are also right about the sun. Sea Buckthorn loves the sun and does best in full sun. There is some information in the literature that a part day sun is ok. I think they will grow nicely but, as with most fruiting plants, full sun is the best.

  6. Are these a named variety, or just generic?

    ReplyDelete
  7. Hello from Tom and Craig- These are Hippophae rhamnoides sub.var. sinesis. In english they are an Asian variety and have no specific registered name. They are the type used by the largest commercial grower of Sea Buckthorn in the world. - The Chinese. Generic sounds kinda cheap but I guess the answer would be yes as they are not Leikora or Golden Sweet or Titan or any of the others you may be able to find for 2x+ the price. One of the things we are hoping to do is develop our own variety, register it, and charge a lot more for rooted cuttings of that variety. That takes years of work and some of those years we have under our belt and are on the way to doing that. I think it will be a few more years before that comes to pass. So----purchasing these plants you get the most widely used type in the world and a robust genetic diverse group of plants. Having all the same genetic clones can pose risks of their own. Hope this answers the question. Thanks for asking. - Tom

    2. do you take paypal?

    3. Hello, Yes I can. Send me an email at foxgreengroup@ gmail.com (no spaces) with what you would like. I will invoice you and when paid, ship the plants. Please include in your email your shipping address etc. Thanks. I was taking paypal almost exclusively but it would not mesh with some of the other computer stuff I wanted to combine.

  16. Tom, please check this page. When I type in order form fields, it doesn't show any text. It allows to type, but typed text is invisible. I tried the latest Chrome and IE - the same effect. I managed to order "blindly", however ;)
    I don't think it's something on my machine, since the same thing was when I used Android tablet...

  17. Hello Vladimir, Wow, thank you very much. I try my best to be good at a lot of things including web design, content, and integration. You are right and that was an epic "fail" on my part. I think it is fixed now. When I tested it my computer automatically filled in the fields and that was in black and visible so I thought all was good. It wasn't and, again, thank you for being so generous in taking the time to let me know. I hope you can use a few extra plants. As a thank you, they will be added to your shipment. If you don't want them yourself, you'll have a few to share with a friend. All the best- Tom

  19. will these trees give fruit in Central Coast of California? I have 3 growing well for years, now about 6ft. I ordered both sexes from rain tree, not sure if I should purchase more if they need cold/ frost that we do not have

    1. The Sea buckthorn does need a cold period to set fruit. Zone 7 is the warmest zone listed for fruit production. That is the best published information. This plant is so new in the United States the data is incomplete. I would not be surprised to find that they performed well in warmer climates, but I have not yet been able to find a reliable example to share.

  21. Tom,
    Some of my seaberry plants have some yellow leaves now. I wonder what might be wrong and what to do. It's quite hot in Maryland now and those plants are in direct sunlight, but I water them regularly.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Hi- you are doing everything correct. It doesn't sound like over watering is a problem. You would have to almost make the soil constantly mucky for that. What you see is normal transplant stress as the new roots are forming. As the season progresses, watch carefully for insect damage, especially from June Bugs and Japanese beetles. The stressed leaves emit a chemical that attracts the bugs. They like them because there is a higher protein ratio in those type of leaves. The leaf yellowing should not progress much more and won't be an issue next growing season. All the Best- Tom

  23. Thank you Tom. Generally they are doing well, and as you said somewhere - it looks like pants I got from you (raised from seeds) are growing faster than sexed ones I got from other farms.
    Schisandra chinensis plants are also all growing, although there is some noticeable insects damage on their leaves. Something likes their taste.

    ReplyDelete
  24. You were right, yellowing did not progress, plants look pretty healthy and most of yours, propagated from the seeds grow better, than sexed plants I bought previous at OneGreenWorld and/or Raintree Nursery.
    You were also right about June Bugs. There were many if them on seaberry plants. I used insecticidal soap and some other stuff. Looks like they are mostly gone and there is no significant damage. I'm glad deer so far ignore seaberry.
