    I wanted to know if you still have Goji berry plants for sale?

    • admin says:

      yes we do! when they are sold out we’ll put that on the ordering page. We have quite a few small plants now which is the listed offer and planting more seeds as well.

      When you purchase the “Buy TWO Year Root Stock- TWO Bare R…”- Does that mean the Gogi plant is 2 years old? How big is that? Does it prefer coco-coir over soil- watering schedules?

      • admin says:

        I know I need to set up a cart and be more clear but yes it means you get two- 2 year plants. I think they prefer being in the ground because they develop huge roots. But Regina is also using coir so you guys have to keep me posted how this does.

  2. admin says:

    Thank you. We are sort of a nursery, just more of a farm trying to earn money for our animals and projects. We appreciate your support.

    How big does a plant get at maturity and how long does that take? Need to plan ahead to make sure I have an adequate space in one of my gardens!?!?!! And what type of light do they prefer? Thanks!!

      I’ve heard different stories about how big goji bushes get. It also depends on many factors. It takes 3 years for Goji to begin fruiting. One woman told me hers was 6 feet and huge in Upstate New York. I would think that it would take quite a while to get that large. If you’re growing it in the ground and in a place where things die back in winter I would imagine you could keep it quite manageable much like blueberry bushes. You can also trim/prune it to make it more bushy and keep it at a size you want. Goji Berry plants are very easy to grow once they get started. Like any fruit or berry bush full sun will give you more fruit although it can grow fine in part shade.

    I am in zone 5 usually. I live 15 miles south of lake erie in ne ohio. So it is variable. I was wondering if they would flourish here or not?

  5. DAVID LAPLANTE says:

    in which grow zone are thesse plants in?

  6. Mazen says:

    I am having a problem with the growth of my goji. When I first brought the plant home in a pot, from Home depot, it had larger leaves and was full of leaves. I have had this plant for a year now and the leaves are small and very few. It has only mad 1 flower, but it quickly fell off, a few days ago. The bottom portion of bush is leafless, as the only grow on upper 1/3 of bush. Dont know what to do to enhance its growth and make it healthier. I have tried fertilizer, miracle grow, and different nutrients with no change. I am running on fumes and wondering if its not going to make it??

      You may have bought a seedling which is harder to grow and takes much longer to establish. I suggest you get a root stock from a mature plant.

  7. Agnieszka Ptaszynski says:

    Hi. I live in Southern California and I wonder when is the best time to buy and start growing this plant. Thank you. A.P.

    • admin says:

      sorry for the delay, we stopped shipping in Oct and have resumed. You can plant them any time, however they will only start growing when the season is warm and above 70 degrees.

  8. Peter Gerre says:

    my goji berry fruit tast bitter, Is that normal or should they tast sweet. What can I do to inprove the tast.

    Thankyou

    P B Gerrn.

    • admin says:

      Sometimes when you first pick a berry that is not fully ripe they taste a little bitter. I don’t think the berries are real sweet anyhow. Most people eat them for the health benefits

    I’m confused about Goji pollinization. I’ve read several places about needing a pollinizer, yet some say Goji are self-fertile. Do I need to buy two plants or would our backyard beehives handle the pollinization? Also, what it the name of the variety you’re offering? Thank you!

    • admin says:

      I’m confused too because I have plenty of people growing one plant. They are self pollinating, however obviously the more flowers, the more bees you’ll attract and the more fruit you’ll set. The type is L. barbarum and the originally mother plant from China.

  10. Betty says:

    Hi.i read above that temps.above 90.is not good for goji..i live in S Fla. most times considered zone 10..and in summer often above 90%..should i not buy this..??

    • admin says:

      Honestly I don’t know. I have some people growing it in Florida but I honestly don’t know how heat tolerant it is. It does grow in part shade so why not plant it in part shade or in a large container? You can watch and see how it does. If it does well plant it and if not bring it out of the heat.

  11. Kristin says:

    I am tempted to buy your “goji orchard.” I love goji berries and they are so expensive to buy, why not grow? Do they like full or partial sun and how much water do they like? And do you cage them? Thanks, if I get brave enough to go for it, I will surely order from you guys, you look awesome!

    • admin says:

      They can grow in part shade but will fruit more in full sun. They really are easy to grow. I might stake them up but caging is not needed. You may have to net them tho because once the birds discover them you could have a problem! Or grow lots extra, some for you and some for them. Every year I grow extra strawberries outside the fence for the critters to keep them from wanting to get in my garden.

  12. Regina says:

    About how many berries produce from one Goji Plant? I am wondering because I may have to purchase another one for alot of them.

    • admin says:

      they produce more each year as they mature. You ordered the two year, right? If so, I’m going to say maybe a few dozen berries? They are pretty prolific. But I’m all for you starting a grove! Not just because I want to sell them but because I know how good they are for you and animals. I’d love to see all homes with them.

      • Regina says:

        Thankyou very much. That is quite alot of berries for the second year! I was wondering though, when I received it the Goji did not have roots, will they grow them soon or should they have had them on it? Please forgive my ignorance, but this is the first time that I have tried to grow the Goji Berry and I am excited about seeing it grow, lol. Like I said before, I want a grove of them hopefully this year! :)

    • admin says:

      I’m sure you didnt get these from us. If you planted from a seed then it might take a while. We sell mature root stock that fruits the first year.

  14. Donna Huddleston says:

    I am very interested in buying some of the goji berry plants, but most of the site I visit don’t say what they taste like? So can you please tell me.

    • admin says:

      Honestly they don’t have a great taste. Its not bad but ist not like strawberries. They are sweeter when you dry them. But most people eat the berries and leaves for the health benefits.
