Good value. Healthy plant.
Apr 17, 2012  |  By Robin
My bush is doing great this Spring. It is leafing out nicely and looks strong and healthy. The stem is thick considering how small it was when it arrived. My family is very pleased with this purchase. As I said customer service was very helpful with this purchase. It was small when it arrived but that means it can be sold at a lower price.


Hearty plants in Denver

Do not be discouraged by the small size Gurney's ships, my first one survived the first year and grew to be a large bush the second and produced some in the fall, it produced very heavy the entire third year and I have wild ones now growing (and producing, completely neglected). The main down side is that hornets love them too. If you have never had the berries, they are a little like cranberries only sweeter. If you like sweetened dried cranberries I would think you would like these.


Little twigs that never grew

I received my two goji berry plants and was surprised at the 5-inch size. I changed my original plan of planting them in the earth, for fear they would be overlooked. I carefully set them in pots next to my greenhouse where I kept them watered. They turned green, then died on me. I'm looking for other sources to buy from. These plants were just too small.


Very Hardy.
Sep 26, 2011  |  By Robin McClary
I want to thank the company for excellent customer service. I ordered a goji in the Spring. When it arrived the tips were damaged and the leaves parched. I wrote to customer service. They sent me a new one which arrived day before yesterday. It is healthy with no broken tips and very green leaves. I look forward to some berries in a year or two. The small size of the young plants seems reasonable to me because it must be shipped for an affordable price. Thank you to Customer Service!


Post Office nearly killed it
Jul 8, 2011  |  By June
"The Post Office left package on deck in boiling hot 98 degree temp and it was nearly cooked. I planted in a pot and put in a location that would get afternoon shade. I thought it was dead, but after several weeks, it started to put out and now, about 2 months later, is about 6"" tall and looking healthy."

Commendable Progress

Well I received about 3 puny little seedlings in the mail, early spring. With enough light and soil it took off and I cant wait to have berries! I'm ordering more soon to have a row of them!

"I planted a goji in my backyard last spring and it started at 2"" and stayed at 2"" all year also. It also died and regrew at least three times before fall as it was adjusting to it's new conditions, but still never got any bigger. Well, I thought for sure that it would be a goner after a Wisconsin winter, but this spring it started to grow and is now a healthy mid-thigh (3 ft) sized bush, so be patient. "

Goji grows very fast in the right conditions. All gurney plants arrive very small and frequently very light deprived as if they have been boxed for weeks. But with slow introduction to sunlight they have all done well.


SAD
May 22, 2010  |  By LINDA
THOUGHT THAT THE PRICE WAS EXPENSIVE FOR RECEIVING SEEDLINGS. I HAVE NO IDEA WHAT TO DO WITH SEEDLINGS. MAYBE WITH A FEW YEARS TLC, IF THEY GET THAT FAR, I CAN PLANT THEM AS A SMALL STICK.


super small plant
May 18, 2010  |  By jill
"The plant arrived and it was 2"" tall. After a month in full sun and fertile soil, it remains 2 inches tall. Made a lovely large home for it and it looks pretty pathetic. "


Great plant so far!!
Apr 17, 2010  |  By Jeff
"I was a bit concerned about ordering an exotic fruit plant but my wolfberry (goji) arrived in early March in fantastic condition. The root ball was moist and protected, and the leaves were all green, healthy, and intact. I planted it immediately in a 10"" pot in basic Scotts gardening soil and put it in a spot that receives 4-6 hours of direct sunlight/day and filtered sun for the remaining day. Now, 7 weeks later, I have already had to trim it back because of the impressive growth it has shown (and to keep the shrubby shape that I desire). So far, this goji berry plant has been one of the easiest things I have ever transplanted and grown! Can't wait for it to fruit next year! "


1st year failure
Apr 14, 2010  |  By Earl W Voss
We also lost both gogi berry plants by last fall but are going to try again and pamper them more. They seem to be a bit hard to get started.

goji's go dormant in the fall and do look like dead twigs. They do not fruit until they are 2 yrs old with max yeild at 5yr. Ours fruited last summer and the fruit is well worth the wait.
