I ordered last year the smaller variety plants that come in a two plant special. They both produced fruit up until a hard frost. I wanted to try the larger variety this time.

Are the Goji plants from seed or cuttings?
Bert Winkler W on Mar 9, 2016
BEST ANSWER: These are grown from cuttings to ensure the characteristics of a true-to-name variety.
My goji berry plant is dying.Leaves are turning yellow and falling off.What can i do to save my plant?
vince on May 6, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I too bought a Goji last fall. It stayed nice and green all winter, and this Spring started putting out a lot of new healthy growth. It is now dying. My best guess is that we have had a lot of rain here in central Arkansas, and I think the drainage is not good enough. If I buy another one, I'll put it in a raised area with better drainage. Appears to me that they need good drainage.
Can you plant goji berries alongside blueberries?
Ashley G on May 12, 2016
BEST ANSWER: It depends how far away they are because blueberries like more acid soil and goji berry like alkaline soil so I would not plant them side by side
The leaves are turning grayish and the plant appears to be in distress. What can we do?
Mammy on Apr 13, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I would try a couple teaspoons of Azomite powder in a quart of water, poured over the base
of the plant. This worked wonders for our Goji plants. They exploded in growth and have been very healthy. You can get Azomite powder on Amazon-it is trace minerals. Hope that helps!

Hardy plant!
Got my order ASAP in beautiful full condition. It transplanted well and did great its first summer but took a couple of hits first from the lawnmowing service and then again from what I surmise was a deer attack over the winter. However it is thriving this year. Great plant!

1St year berries
This plant arrived on time was in great shape and bore fruit it's first fall. Only complaint I have is these berries are far from sweet they taste more like tomatoes. Not at all sweet as they depict in the description

Gojis - not the flavor expected
Our goji berry bushes produced in their first year, but the flavor was actually not at all what we expected (having tasted dried goji berries in the past). It may have something to do with the soil or the fertilizer, but I'm inclined to think that fresh goji berries are simply not all that good. I recommend Aronia (Chokeberry) or Juneberries instead - both are more flavorful.

Ready in second year
I planted the Goji berries last year and they only produced one berry. But so far this year the bush has grown significantly and I expect a good harvest. And besides giving it a little fertilizer I have done very little to it.

slow growing
The big lifeberry goji was a healthy plant. It is a slow growing plant. I would recommend you try it.

Goji plant
I ordered 1 Goji berry plant last year. My dislikes were that the plant was fairly expensive and very small in size. However, the plant is doing very well this year. It seems hearty and strong. It is not yet bearing fruit but seems to be filling out nicely. Overall it's a nice plant and I am very excited to see what the berries will be like.
