How to use Goji Berry in the landscape?
Due to the size of the fruit and the awkward size of the plant, Goji berries are hard to produce in large-scale farms. However, Goji berries are great to fill a section of the landscape that is bare and needs to have a productive purpose. Goji berry plants are super easy to grow and one Goji plant can take off and fill a space in a few growing seasons. The long branches droop and resemble a willow if left untouched, but use a trellis or tomato cage to contain the stems and make picking the bright red berries easier. Plus, after the purple flowers bloom in May and June, the long harvest season begins and can extend to late fall. Berries should be allowed to elongate before being picked, and the longer they are on the branches, the sweeter the fruit will be.
Hardiness Zone: 5-9
