A staple food of its originating country, China, Goji Berry 'Sweet Lifeberry' is fast becoming a popular fruit here too. The sweet, vitamin C packed berries are high in antioxidants and protein too, making them commonly known as one of the "superfruits". Lycium barbartum is a low maintenance, deciduous shrub, that can be grown as part of a shrub collection, or due to its spreading nature, as part of a hedge or screen. The pale lavender/ pink flowers appear in summer and soon start to turn to large numbers of the fruits which are bright red when ripe. Height: 350cm (138"). Spread: 500cm (197").

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.
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.
