What do do when your plant arrives.

 

When your seedling arrives the root ball will be wrapped in plastic and it will be moist. Then it is wrapped to protect it. Very carefully unwrap your plant. You should have a 1 or 5 gallon container. I prefer using a non-soil mix containing peat and perlite.  It’s best not to use soils that contain fertilizers or use fertilizers right way. Carefully plant your seedling and water heavily. Make sure your pot has drain holes and your soil mix is a well draining mix.

Although your goji berry plant will one day withstand winter temps, now is not the time to throw it outside. At first keep it indoors at a moderate temp buy a sunny window. After a week or two you can start to take it outdoors but avoid extreme temps.  Contrary to what you may read Goji Berry Plants do not like high temps or sub-tropical above 90 degrees. This doesn’t mean that once your plant is establish it can’t handle a few hot months. This is why I recommend growing Goji Berry plants in a container the first year or two.

Goji can successfully grow and even fruit in a container, however you’ll have more success planting it outside once its established. They can get huge and provide you and the birds with a healthy snack.  Goji berry plants will flourish in zones 7 and above. Some people more south have been known to grow them but heat will damage them. They also are more productive if allowed to winter over. Just be sure to mulch heavily in winter, especially the first few years. I sometimes make a clear plastic tent for my figs and place it on around Feb to get them to leaf sooner. I think this would also be a great idea for goji berry plants.
