Hi permies friends. I am looking to buy some sea buckthorn cuttings. I need both male and female. I have tried to germinate these from seed with no luck. Also, I am in southern Missouri. Anyone have experience growing these in a more southern climate? Thanks!

I'm not in the area, but I have had luck with two places. Try your local forest service tree nursery, mine has had seaberry in the past. Also I have had great success with growing from seed from Jiovi at Foxgreen farms. https://jiovi.com/products/seabuckthorn-seeds?_pos=4&_sid=0ef74f661&_ss=r

they are $4 for 40 seeds and I had over 50% germination.

I haven't seen sea buckthorn in the Missouri tree sales in the last few years (and I watch those closely) I do have some of the seeds from Jiovi, but due to weird stuff, haven't planted them yet. I'm in Southern Missouri, and looking forward to seeing if they make it. everything I saw said give them seriously full sun, so they are going along the south road here, to be a windbreak and a good thorny hedge with southern exposure. Jiovi might sell you cuttings too, worth asking, nice folks :)
Edit: They need cold stratification to sprout, did you do that?

Oh that's great info, thank you! I'll check out your link.  I actually do get a lot of trees from our Missouri Dept of conservation, but they don't have sea buckthorn.

Oh you are in southern Missouri too, that's great.  Yes I did do the cold stratification, but maybe just didn't have good seeds.  I'll give Jiovi a try.  Hopefully they grow well for both of us here!

I have a cultivar that grows very well also on heavy soils(and any other type of soil), which is often problematic for most sea buckthorns. Can offer seeds and/or cuttings (F/M). EU only. If anyone interested, you may let me know.
