How to take care of Lycium barbarum - Goji Berry
For best results soak the roots for approx 2 hrs before planting, water well after planting and for the next few weeks. Grows best in a soil with a low lime content. Needs a sunny location and well drained soil. To keep the size of the plant in shape and to encourage the most colourful bark, remove a third of the stems back to ground level each spring. Fertilise in spring. Take cuttings in November to February. Flowering period: May to June
Plants begin to fruit after two-to-three years. Harvest berries from late summer until the first frosts. Only fully ripe fruit are edible. Fruit can turn black when handled so consider harvesting by shaking the berries gently from the plant onto a sheet placed beneath.
