Sea Berries

I have lived in Seattle area 20+ years and have driven the I-5 corridor to the Portland area on many an occasion to visit with family and friends.  During my travels, I've passed Tsugawa Nursery in Woodland, WA a gazillion times and recently committed to stop in for a visit and what an amazing place I found. This nursery has every berry, fruit tree and any other food producing plant I would want to grow in my gardens. It was here that I found both the female and male sea berry plants that have been on my "wish list" and the prices are oh so reasonable!

The sea berry is not sweet, but is high in nutritional value, has anti-inflamatory properties, and is good for making jam, juice, pie and lotion.  My species of bush, will have a spread of 8 feet and a height about the same. Looking forward to seeing the orange berries next summer!


  1. Seaberry is one thing I'm missing in my garden, perhaps not for long. Thanks for the the Tsugawa Nursery tip.

  2. oooh oooh - I've seen these and I want one! I'll be eager to hear how it works out for you.
