Pearl Sutton wrote: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 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!

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.



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.
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!
Awesome, thank you Pearl!  I saw your new order.  I'll send you a message from seedwise.com right before I ship.

Hi friends.  It's year 6 for me to sell some root cuttings of one of Nature's most generous plants. This is the Bocking 14 cultivar, and does not set seeds.  These are generous, hefty root cuttings that include a portion of the crown and emerging leaves.  They will be at least 5 inches long, $2.50 each, minimum order of 5.  Or, if you prefer, you can order root pieces without the crown for only about $1.00 each, at least 5 inches long.  I have been growing comfrey for many years and have it all over the gardens and around all the fruit trees on the farm.  I have set up a listing on Seedwise.com with more info and a place to order securely.  Thanks for supporting a small family permaculture farm!

Leila, I know this is an old post, but I used trichoderma this spring for leaf curl and it worked wonders!!! I got a powder that was a mix of trichoderma and mycorrhizal beneficial fungi from website called kelp4less. I mixed it and made a foliar spray. I did it about 4 weeks after leaves emerged and there was already a lot of fruit set. I saw new healthy growth within a few days. I sprayed again about 10 days later, as the website recommended. Most of the infected leaves have dropped off by now (a month later) and you can barely tell there was a problem. Fruit looks fine. Can't believe people don't know about this.
