If you want fresh "superfruits" growing in your own garden, Goji Berry 'Big Lifeberry' is just the thing. This easy to grow deciduous shrub will soon establish itself and is tolerant of most conditions, even coastal gardens where the salt-laden air can kill off less hardy plants. For best results Lycium barbarum is best grown in full sun as this will produce the biggest fruits, which are packed with antioxidants and vitamin C and can be used fresh or dried. Flowering in late Spring or early Summer, the funnel shaped purple/pink blooms soon develop into the delicious berries which will not only look good in your borders but has the added bonus of being healthy too! Height: 350cm (138"). Spread: 500cm (197").

Water goji berry plants regularly until they are fully established. Once established, they are drought tolerant and cope well in poor soils conditions. Goji plants benefit from some winter protection during their first two years; however with maturity they become increasingly hardy, tolerating temperatures down to -15°C (5°F). Prune goji berries in winter or early spring by removing any damaged or crowded growth and pruning the stems to fit the available space.
Pot up plants and grow them on in frost free conditions until large enough to plant outside in their final positions. Prior to transplanting them, acclimatise goji berry plants to outdoor conditions over a period of 7 to 10 days. Plant goji berries in any well drained soil in full sun. When growing goji berries in patio containers use a soil based compost such as John Innes No.3.
