Hi, I am reaching out to see if anyone knows where to get some sea buckthorn in northern michigan for a fair price. I am finally moving foward with my food forest interplanted with apples, nuts, plums, apricots, leaches and hopefully honey locust and preferably sea buckthorn!. Having a hard time finding any sea buckthorn at all really.

Have you looked at your local county conservation office? Ours (in SD) offers a large variety of species both native and non-native that grow well in our zone. So grateful someone pointed me to that invaluable resource. Most have websites at this time.

Here’s where you can buy seeds but they’ll likely be a wild variety meaning more thorns smaller fruit and more hassle. Another option would be to wait until someone like sean from edible acres on YouTube start their sales and pick up some saplings for a relatively good price but supplies are limited since its a small family run nursery.

Hope this helped.

I have about 500 unsexed seabuckthorn seedlings in my nursery inventory, $5 each. https://mountaintimefarm.com/products/seaberry-seedlings

The weather here (Missoula, MT) has been super warm this week and the ground has thawed back out, so although it says on my site that winter orders will ship April/May 2022, if you put in an order the next few days, I will be able to ship the order out this coming week.

Parentage unknown, they are grown from seeds I purchased.

I do have some silver buffalo berry seedlings (very similar plant), grown from known parents that were/are massively productive.
