Lycium barbarum

Goji berry is a deciduous woody perennial plant, that bears small purplish flowers in late Spring / early Summer. followed by small orange-red edible (when ripe) berries


Flowering

From Early Summer TO Mid Summer

Goji berries have small starry purple flowers in Summer that are followed by the berries

 

Plant

From Late Summer TO Early Autumn

Plant the shrubs in late Summer or early Autumn in a sunny site in free-draining well-manured soil. Plant at least 2m apart

 

Propagating by cuttings

From Early Autumn TO Mid Autumn

Take semi- ripe cuttings from this season's growth in Autumn. Cut neatly, just below a leaf node, a 5" approx. piece of a healthy shoot that has soft growth at the tip. pinch out the growing tip, and cut off the bottom leaves. Dip the bottom of the cutting in hormone rooting powder, and carefully place in a pot of cutting compost with the leaves just above the level of the compost. Water, label, cover with a polythene bag, and place in a warm, bright place, out of direct sunlight. Take the polythene bag off periodically for a while for ventilation (at least twice a week)
