Goji berry

Posted: 01/11/2013 at 13:51

I've had a Goji berry plant for the last 2 yrs, plenty of leaves but no fruit as of yet, someone did mention that it doesn't fruit until it's 3rd year so hopefully next year....As for eating them, I've tried the dried ones mixed in with other dried fruit like cranberries and blueberries and they seem to be ok. Maybe an acquired taste ?

I have mine in a pot still but might get it planted out in spring to give the roots space to expand. My garden faces East on an end terrace house so gets a decent amount of sunshine. Roll on next summer.

Talkback: Scale insects

Cheers for the advice, I'll try that this afternoon. Seems they have mainly gone for 1 half of both fuchsias, the other halves are flowering away happily. For now....

Talkback: Scale insects

I'm needing some advice on clearing up a big problem with scale insects. They have attacked my 2 fuchsias which I had carefully overwintered and was nurturing back indoors until the decent weather came. Also they are all over my sweet pepper plants. A neighbour has advised up-rooting the entire plant and dunking them in a weak solution of Jeyes fluid to eradicate them ? Any other advice greatfully accepted.
