Sea Buckthorn

Sea Buckthorn
Sea Buckthorn is a useful plant on the sand dunes of Holkham in order to stabilise the dunes with its aggressive root system. The orange fruits are tasty for the birds who no doubt have seeded part of the walled garden. There is a large and prickly job to do in digging out the plants before they engulf the plants around them.

  1. The berries are quite edible and incredibly healthy. They're not just for the birds anymore :)

    They contain omega 3, 6, 7, & 9, loads of vitamins, and depending on the strain, they taste rather good.
