are one of the most nutritionally dense foods on the market
and can easily be grown all over the UK, being from the Himalayas
and frost tolerant after the first year. They prefer a well
drained sunny position. They continue producing fruit all
summer until the first frosts. Plant them in pots, in the
border or in the vegetable garden. Very detailed instructions
are included with the seeds to ensure excellent results as
they can be difficult to propagate by traditional methods.
seeds germinate on average in 7-14 days and the plant will
start producing the following year. The flowers are small
and bluish/purple in colour followed by the small bright red
berries. The plant will reach 8-10ft in height growing as
a vine and can be cut back every year to encourage density
and to be shaped or trained. New plants can then be produced
from the cuttings.
fruits are slightly sweet and can be enjoyed as a drink after
soaking the berries for a short while, eaten fresh with cereal,
salads, as a snack or added to smoothies. They can be dried
or frozen for storage to be enjoyed later. Even the children
will enjoy them.
Gojiberries are costly to buy, and to get the maximum health
benefit, everyone should enjoy a handful of berries every
day, so why not grow your own? Any time is the time for sowing,
but now is a good time, so order your seeds today. Allow up
to 21 days for delivery.
