I got seed from Richter's, a supplier of medicinal plants and seed in
Canada. They came in the dried berry, which I've heard keeps them more
viable. Easy to separate the seeds from berry, and got way more seeds
than I needed from just a few berries. I found them just as easy or
easier to start and grow as tomato plants, and only had trouble with
them once they were in the second year in pots, did not seem to do
very well. Also one planted in ground made it through winter fine,
then languished. Dropped leaves midsummer. I have the same problem
with seaberry, and wonder if soil here is too rich (clay loam),
humidity too high in summer, or something else.
