A vigorous and strong pollinator, Lord has silvery green leaves which may be used as animal fodder- rather than discarding prunings from the plant, try feeding them to birds, or better yet, let some chickens keep the base of the bush clean and sucker-free by purposefully pasturing them through your plants. Sea Buckthorn have nodules on their roots which help fix nitrogen into the ground, and are a common plant in permaculture orchards for this natural 'fertilizer' effect on plants in their vicinity.

Canadian Hardiness Zone: 3

Ripens: n/a

To Order for Spring 2021: orders for spring shipping or pick-up can be placed as early as December. If you wish to reserve anything before that time or have any questions, please email us: sales@silvercreeknursery.ca. We sell only apples and pears bareroot in the fall, as they are most winter hardy. Everything else (as well as apple and pear) is available in spring.
