First of all, don’t be fooled by ads claiming the goji berries being naturally shade dried. If this were so, then why can’t the ones sold for eating germinate when planted and bring forth seedlings? I have personally tried numerous ones I purchased over the internet, but with not even one source that would germinate. That is, except ours.
We now have a package deal: Click on “package deals” and you will have options available for purchasing the viable Goji seeds and our “Ocean Potion” seaweed fertilizer you will discover enhances your results.
And now for the planting instructions:
When you are ready to start your planting, simply put the “dried raisins” between dampened paper towels for an hour or two. Next, slice them open, which will reveal about 20-35 viable seeds. Carefully remove these tiny seeds and promptly plant them in ¼ to ½ inch of loose porous topsoil. Spray them religiously with a vapor mist sprayer until they are well established in indirect sunlight. After two leaf generation, you can then water them with a careful sprinkler system, being careful not to overwater. Once you have a third leaf generation, it is advisable to snip off the main stem over this generation, causing the plant to “bush”, rather than “tree”. This leads to a more prolific producer. By now, you can transfer the seedlings into more direct sunlight. Now you can water them on a more regular basis. Hereafter, the plants will be hardy and prolific growers, producing a few berries perhaps in the first year or two, but producing normal harvests in 4-5 years subsequent to planting.
