Goji Berry Plants

Goji 011.jpg

Lycium barbarum Goji (Wolfberry). The berries are reported to have a very high level of antioxidants, especially carotenoids, and can help the body adjust to stress and change.

Coming from high altitudes, the plant is hardy, easy to grow and maintain, and drought tolerant once established. Goji plants need well-drained soil with a pH of 6.8 or higher, and should not be fertilized. Extra nitrogen may even kill them.

Like most fruit plants, they prefer full sun. Plants are large shrubs that grow 7-10 ft tall. Pruning will keep the plant shorter and thicker and produce more flowers and fruit. The numerous trumpet-shaped flowers seen in early summer develop into bright red berries by late summer. Flowering and fruiting will continue until the first heavy frost. Plants flower the year after planting with maximum fruit production in the 4th or 5th year.

USDA zone 3-8 but top branches may winterkill during severe zone 3 winters and regrow in the spring.

VegiBee Garden Pollinator

Vegibee rechargable.jpgVegibee battery powered.jpg

The VegiBee Garden Pollinators were designed to dramatically improve the productivity of the home food garden. The VegiBee plant pollinators can be used on blueberries and strawberries and other fruit as well as on all tomatoes, peppers, peas, beans and eggplant. These plants can self-pollinate, but due to protected gardens that reduce the wind and smaller bee populations, crop yields have been reduced.

The Vegibee Garden Pollinators use sound wave technology to harvest excess plant pollen. This excess plant pollen is captured in a pollen spoon that can then be used to pollinate 4-5 additional flowers on the same plant, increasing plant productivity. This simple extra step will improve the yield in your garden by 30% or more. For more info see VegiBee Questions and Answers and Watch the video

VegiBee is a small investment for a very big yield in your home garden. Purchase your VegiBee today (VegiBee Garden Pollinator shipped separately from plant order).
