The goji berry shrub (Lycium barbarum) is a hardy, deciduous plant tolerant of harsh conditions. Hailed as a ‘superfood’, the nutritious berries can be eaten fresh, dried, or cooked in preserves. Like honeyberries, gojis fruit on old wood. Here’s how to prune your goji berry shrub for maximum harvests.
The best time to prune your goji is spring. Wait until the buds begin to break, as it will be easier to see where any stems have died back over winter.
As your plant grows, you’ll get the best results by training it against a wall, fence, trellis or obelisk. Simply tie in the loose stems to secure.
