A1. Thank you. No, we are not interested.
- Q2. I want to grow seabuckthorn here in France I understand that I need male and female plants, on your site you don’t say what time of the year to plant the seeds/roots. As you can’t send roots till November there is no hurry for them but maybe I need the seeds now?

A2. Seabuckthorn seeds can be seeded indoors in pots in January or early February, one seedling per pot is allowed to grow for 3
months before transplanting to the field in early May.
