Goji berries
Please can anyone tell me if I could plant a goji berry in the ground ?
Is the plant hardy, how big does it get, can it be pruned etc
I've bought one but it has no inf on the box
All I can find on the internet is where to buy one, But I don't want to buy one because I've already done that !

Hi hywel, sorry mg link didn't work when I looked, but I checked this site out earlier in the year.

I'm planting mine in the second fruit cage along with a load of blueberries bushes, straight into the soil, but mine is about 2 yrs old. And yes they are hardy.

Odd 2ndhand the link worked fine when I copied and pasted it just now... take you to exactly the same site that you found :-)

they get large if left, Hywel, and do need pruning - 2 methods, one of which is more rigorous yet yields more fruit. Google 'goji berry pruning' - lots of info comes up.
