Wow, this is great info! How does the goji berry measure up with respect to feed for bees, nectar and pollen?

Blair, Glad this info is helpful to you! Goji berry plants produce plentiful flowers (as you can see from the number of resulting berries in the photos on our blog post about them—click above on “Goji berries—antioxidant beauty…”. To see a photo of the flower itself, click here and go to page 130 http://ucce.ucdavis.edu/files/datastore/234-2455.pdf

My plant is about 7 feet in a six and a half gallon pot. Since April the flowers with the buds keep falling off .. It’s in organic soil and I live in sunny SOCAL. Could you please tell me why this is happening? Thank you and great site!

I read that Goji plants are self pollinating, but that they’ll do better with a companion. For now, i only bought one mature plant and hoping to get a good crop. Is there a way i can help aid in the pollination? Maybe give the plant some gentle shakes when the flowers bloom or use a paint brush to spread pollen?

This video was *so* helpful! Thank you very much!!
I don’t know anything about growing anything. I bought two giant pots (21 inches by 21 inches) - much bigger than what you show in the video. So, I think I’m good on size. What I don’t know is: Should I drill some holes in the bottom of the pot? It looked like there were some drainage holes in the bottom of the pot in the video.
If it should have drainage holes, should I put the pots up on bricks or something so that the water can drain out of the holes?
I have snails in my yard. Should I wrap those bricks in copper or something to discourage the snails from going up the pots? Or maybe snails don’t like goji leaves?
Should I put some gravel or something in a layer in the bottom of the pot to help with drainage??? I remember seeing a TV show that showed something like that many years ago.
As you can see, I really am very ignorant about growing plants, but I’m so excited to try this because I love the idea of growing something I can eat and that will be easy to grow.
I noticed you are out of these roots right now? Is that true?

Yes, drainage holes are absolutely necessary. I wouldn’t put gravel in the bottom because goji berries have a long, deep tap root so they need that space. I wouldn’t worry about slugs and snails from the bottom of the pot. Copper wire is a deterrent but I doubt it will be necessary. Yes we are out for the season. The easiest, cheapest way to grow goji berries is from rhizomes which are only available during the dormant season, that is in winter.

I purchased a gogi some time ago and have it in a pot.

I planted two goji berry plants in a smaller area than they (now) obviously need. I just read that they have a long tap root. Is it safe to transplant them? If so, when and how?
