Goji berries

Karl Byrne asked 12 years ago

I was wondering if have any experience at growing Goji berries. I recently germinated some seeds and they seem to be growing pretty well although quite slowly. I searched on the net but i’ve yet to find anyone who has grown these plants to maturity in this country.

Goji berries are Lycium barbarum, which has been grown in this country for possibly two centuries, known as the Duke of Argyll’s tea tree. It has even naturalised in a few places. It is a shrub that grows outdoors in ordinary soil, also called wolf berry. It tends to be rather straggly and the flowers are small but it is good in a seaside garden as it is wind resistant.
