Mostly growing things I can eat or put in a cocktail. Weekends split between allotment, garden and band rehearsal. Check out my blog at www.digforsa

I was lucky to find 3 of these underneath a huge mass of brambles when I took on my allotment. They were very neglected but perked right up after a decent haircut. But the berries taste of NOTHING which is a bit disappointing.

Oh no, what a shame. Are these the super berries I've read about?

Yep, the hipster berries that cost a fortune. I've been drying them and using them in breakfast cereal and cakes so at least they are being eaten. I don't feel any healthier. That's probably the cake.

@digforsanity @richard.spicer.7906 Bought Expensive goji berry bushes 2/3 years ago. Put them in pots and to say they have been unsuccessful is an under statement. Not one berry on them. I'm now at the point of thinking cut your losses throw them out but besides that I need the garden space as my latest venture is a black choke berry Aronia Melanocarpa Viking.

That's too bad your gojis didn't produce anything. Believe me though, you're not missing anything!
