Anyone wanting to grow Goji's. I bought some dried berries at the bulk store and cleaned the seeds and planted them and they are beginning to grow.
love to know what you did differently than me . I tried the same thing with no success.
I only bought a couple of berries and I peeled them and separated the seed and let it really dry, then I put them in an envelope and in the fridge for a few weeks until I was ready to plant. I got the idea from you and did it because I saw that Dominion Seed catalogue has a package of them for $9. They germinated in about l week. Just looked at them now before I post this and it looks like pretty well all the seeds germinated. Try again.
ohhhhhh, I'm gonna try it too!
Thanks Betty for sharing your experiences.
who is now going to the store for goji berries.
I've started some, bought the Goji berries from a health food store. Apparently Lycium barbarum not Lycium chinese is the one you want to grow. I just soaked a couple of squished berries in water, collect the seed and sprouted them in damp paper towel. Lots of seed from just two berries and I think every one of the germinated.
I was trying to find the difference between the two Goji berry plants mentioned in aftermidnight's post but they seem to be the same plant. Let me know if I am wrong. Betty
I've been told when looking for info on these berries Lycium barbarum is the more nutritious of the two. I have a couple of small plants growing in the greenhouse, hope to plant them out this spring.
