The Goji plants arrived in great shape. They were packed very professionally. I would not hesitate to purchase more plants from this website. I can't wait till next year when I might have my own home grown Goji berries!

Does best in well-drained neutral to slightly alkaline soils. At planting time, sink a 1x1" wood stake near the plant and bundle the canes around it. Let the tips of the stems cascade down, like a fountain. Each spring, move the tied point up further along the stake so that about one-quarter of the growth is above the tie. Then cut the branch tips back by 4-6". This encourages lateral branching, which is where most of the flowering and fruiting takes place.
Grow superfruit in your own backyard! Fruits become especially sweet when dried. Goji berries are easy to grow in full sun, although some staking is recommended for maximum access to the nutrient-rich fruit. A pollinator is not needed. Find out more.Sweet Lifeberry® Lycium barbarum 'SMNDSL'

I have yet to put this in the ground, but I have grown gojis in the past and the specimens (I bought 1 gal each sweetberry and a bigberry) that arrived today look more amazing and well cared for than any other live or bare root plants I have purchased anywhere, EVER, hands down! I kid you not, in fact, I was shocked to see such lush, green, well structured plants inside the well packaged box, although, the fiance can't read "this end up," and it was laying on it's side, it was all in place. way to go PW's, you proven yourselves worthy! :) Thanks for putting some care in the products you provided.brandon wells, Nebraska, United States, 9 years ago
