    About six years ago I bought goji seeds. Planted, the seedlings developed well. I planted her in the fall in the garden. The next year, the plants blossomed, began to grow, but by the fall they were all gone. It turned out that I was sowing seeds in peat tablets, and the roots of the plants did not break through the nets, which I had not guessed to remove. She wrote out new seeds. Now one seedling is already four years old.

    He began to bloom a couple of seasons ago, but for some reason the flowers appear somewhere in late August - early September. For two years I saw only one fruit about 1 cm long on it. Spring is coming, but I don't know what to do with it? Maybe cut the branches (they are already 2-2,5 m long)? Or do you need to do something else? Tell me, please, I really want to get a harvest.

    Every year, the goji plant is becoming increasingly popular in summer cottages. The Internet is replete with information about the benefits of this culture, as well as assurances that goji is not ill with anything. And if I completely agree with the first paragraph, then I can object to the second, relying on personal observations.

    Once again I am convinced that plants without pests are a rarity. As a rule, after a certain period of cultivation on any crop, signs of disease damage appear and pests settle. On goji, he noticed aphids (on young sprouting shoots), Colorado beetles (eating flowers and young ovary), winter scoop caterpillars (one such caterpillar can eat up to 20 cm of young shoot per night).
    From pests, as soon as I notice them in the bushes, I treat goji with infusion of wormwood (I fill a third of the bucket with chopped fresh grass, fill it with water, and insist 3-4 days) several times at intervals of a week. As for the diseases, the leaves showed signs of late blight and powdery mildew, but only on those plants when planting which did not have enough wood ash. He concluded: so that the goji bushes do not hurt, they need to be grown on alkaline soil, and also make sure that the plantings are not thickened. The fungal problem was also fought with folk methods.

    In the spring, we received by mail a goji seedling - a bush the size of my palm. I read that the plant loves sunny areas where water does not stagnate, and tolerates drought. Regular pruning and ... poor soil are important for a good harvest (shoots and leaves grow on fertile goji, but few fruits).
    A seedling planted in April, watered abundantly, mulched the soil with humus. Further care - watering and weeding. Goji quickly went up. Upright stems droop over time.

    In early August of the same year, the bush bloomed with purple flowers (flowering continued until November), and in late summer, oblong berries began to ripen. I took off the completely ripe fruits every day (from about October) and dried them in the kitchen, then put them in a glass jar.
    When my husband saw a fruit-bearing bush, he remembered how, in childhood, in the Rostov Region, he was playing hide and seek in such thickets and eating berries, and he called the plant derez. It turned out that dereza, lycium - these are all different names for the goji plant that is now popular in the market, which belongs to the nightshade family.
    In the fall, the frustrated shoots were cut off, leaving one kidney each. In the spring young branches will go to growth, on which flowers and fruits will be laid.
