THE MOST BEAUTIFUL BERRIES

Salt winds can deter many plants, but not sea buckthorn. It thrives in poor sandy soil by the sea, and it can stabilise dunes and build up shelter – and it is rich in nutrition. Vitamins and amino acids, protein and potassium are in its berries, and their juice makes a healthy drink and a tasty source of flavouring. Ethnobotanical researcher Anna Canning describes its harvesting, from China to Arctic Finland, and its possibilities for areas like Orkney.
