Hippophae rhamnoides Hedging

Sea buckthorn is a large, thorny shrub that makes a great hedging plant for sunny sites on the coast. It tolerates chalk, poor, sandy soil and very exposed locations.
Sea buckthorn is good for tall hedges and can reach up to about 6 metres high when it grows freely.

Sea buckthorn hedge plants are delivered bareroot during winter (Nov-March) and pot-grown year round.
Bareroot bushes are cheaper than pot grown plants.
All our hedge plants are measured by their height in centimetres above the ground (the roots aren't measured).

Spacing a Sea buckthorn hedge:

Plant Sea buckthorn hedging at 3 plants per metre, 33cms apart.
You can also plant Sea buckthorn at 5 plants per metre in a staggered double row, with 33 cms between each plant along the row and 40cms between the rows.

General description of Sea buckthorn plants:

This tall, native shrub is very prickly, with big, tough thorns. The branches are stiff and upright, forming an attractive shrub or a dense, secure hedgerow. It has narrow, silver-green leaves that are adapted to cope with strong winds and salt spray. Its flowers are too small to have ornamental value, but they attract plenty of bees and ripen into thick clusters of orange berries that contrast beautifully with the light grey leaves.

Did You Know?
The berries are edible and high in vitamin C, although they taste quite sharp. We suggest blending them with other fruits into a smoothie. Only female Sea Buckthorn plants produce berries and the plants we deliver will be a random mix of roughly 50-50 male and female. Female plants will start bearing fruit when they are about five or six years old, so the plants we deliver are too young for us to know which sex they are.
Sea Buckthorn is excellent for stabilising the loose soil on sand dunes and rocky slopes.
