Sea buckthorn. A large shrub or small tree native to Britain, growing 6m (20 ft) high or more; nitrogen-fixing.

Likes a well drained, sunny site and grows in any soil. Dioecious, so both sexes are needed for fruit. Growth 3.5m (12 ft) in 10 years; hardy to -35°C. Stratification: CS17. Number of seeds: 100.
