Specificity of woody plants reproduction, including sea buckthorn, has characteristic features. It is rather difficult to find two species with the same synchronism of the seed and vegetative reproduction. The vegetative reproduction consists of several directions. Almost all of them are observed in nature (without human intervention), including the method of shoot rooting, which occurs due to the contact of the lower branches with the soil. Sea buckthorn is propagated by vegetative and seed methods under production conditions. However, in case of seed propagation, due to the high heterozygosity of seeds, especially valuable characters are not transmitted to the offspring. Therefore, when the cultivation of sea buckthorn, it is necessary to use the methods of reproduction that would allow obtaining genetically homogenous offspring with economically valuable maternal characteristics. Grafting is one of the most common methods of the sea buckthorn vegetative reproduction. The goal of research is to determine the regenerative capacity of varieties and forms of sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides L.). We have carried out the field experimental work in high mountain conditions in the southeast of Kazakhstan at an altitude of 1450 m A.S.L. We used the standard methodological developments of the forest planting material replication. The best terms for propagation by herbaceous cuttings are from the 3rd decade of June to the 1st decade of July. Propagation by herbaceous cuttings can be carried out not only in greenhouses, but also in open ground conditions. The results obtained can be applied in the forest nursery.
