Hippophae Growing Instructions Print

Hippophae


Soak the seeds in water for 48. of the cotyledons. Seeds can be sown directly outdoors or you can plant them indoors and transplant them after sprouts are produced. If the seeds are planted outdoors, sow them about 1 to 2 cm deep in the soil. Water the seeds regularly, to prevent dryness in the soil. If the seeds are sown during the end of spring, cover them with a light soil layer. Seeds will germinate within 5 to 10 days from sowing time. Sow the seeds about 1 m apart in a row. The rows should have about 4 m of distance from each other.
If seeds are grown indoors, plant them in January or in the starting of February. Allow the seeds to grow into seedlings and stay indoors for 3 months before transplanting it in the beginning of May. Spring is the ideal time for planting.
Avoid the use of nitrogen-based fertilizers, as Sea Buckthorn can fix atmospheric nitrogen. Harvesting is a bit difficult because it has dense thorns in them. It is best to remove the entire branch even though it is harmful. Allow the harvested branch to freeze and berries in the branch will be easily taken out.
