I picked up a cheap one in the supermarket today. Just done a search and am now wondering if my impulse bargain buy is a bargain after all

After reading the thread I'm certainly not going to plant it in the garden. But how about in a pot? Has anyone had any success with them?

I grew one from seed, it is a puny weedy thing that almost dies each winter and has yet to do anything exciting. However, maybe I am being harsh on it!

I was given 2 as a present and they turned out to be invasive triffids that rooted everywhere, turned spiny and never showed any inclination to fruit. I think after much digging I have eventually got rid of them.

I never even liked Goji berries to eat before I got the plants and certainly don't now

in a large pot and restrain their triffid qualities...I can't comment on the fruitfulness yet as gardening has been a bit disrupted

But it looks so innocent, and the label had photos of lovely berries on it

I've popped it in a pot a couple of centimetres up from the one it came in (9cm) It's only small so I won't be holding my breath for fruit any time soon, or by the sound of it ever

i got 2, 3 years ago, they are growing like Tryfids and have had no fruit at all. Im debating about digging them out and replacing with something else, as yet to be decided

I wonder why they aren't fruiting The Otter Farm chap seems to have no trouble with them (I've been reading about them in 'A Taste Of The Unexpected' and on-line).

I've got one somewhere in the garden... I've forgotten which one it is.

Yeh Mark does seem to be able to get his to fruit, may drop him a note to see what he does with them
