Stress from drought may inhibit the flowering and fruiting of your Goji plant. Plant in well drained gardens or containers.
Stake the strongest canes of your Goji Berry Plant for ease in harvesting. You can space plants approximately 7 feet apart as they can spread 5 to 7 feet. Pruning lateral branches lightly will make the plant easier to manage and encourage new growth which is good as Goji blooms on new wood.
Plant your Goji Plant in full sun though it will tolerate some light shade. Goji berries attract birds, deer and raccoons, so you may want to protect them by putting bird netting around it or using vegetable safe topical repellents.
