Have put the goji seeds on a heater to warm the soil. Unfortunately, I didn't take them out of their pods, and I got mildew from dampness. So started again and left them in natural light by an electric heater and have one sprouting. But the mildew or furry mold is on top of the soil. I wonder if once the seeds are infected, whether they will just stop growing or should I repot with clean soil? Have put them in direct sun like yourself and I have some germination taking place. How would you rate these plants on a scale of hardy 1-10 once they are established with woody stems. They remind me of the oleander plant which is 10- take a cutting and it's sprouting in just water overnight. Also, there are some plants that if you have grown them from seed, simply don't bear fruit - ever. I may be wrong here, but we're sold a lot of genetically modified nursery stock in Canada and America which never grows true or will not self seed. That's why I'm used to imagining there may be problems with fruit.

I'm very interested in how the goji berry bushes survived being transplanted out and when do you expect them to produce some berries?

Can you grow goji berries out side in this country ?????
Herself insisted on growing them in the tunnel and they really have to go as they seem to be sprouting a few inches a day and with the space we have given them I'd say we will be lucky to get about 9 berries off them lol.
So they really have to go outside if the will survive our winters.
