A strong growing native of our sand dunes, the Sea Buckthorn makes a great hedge or groundcover, fixing nitrogen in the soil as well as producing a very nutritious fruit, they make a useful addition to any wildlife garden, especially if you have a sandy soil.
They have thin silvery leaves, rather insignificant flowers in the summer followed by bright orange berries in the autumn for which you will however; require a male and a female. These are fiddly to pick, but in spite of being a bit on the acid side make a very refreshing and nutritious drink and are good cooked, with a hint of apricot.
