I did really well from seed this year, transplanting though they look v poorly, still interesting to see how they get on.

No I won't use a smiley because I've decided to turn into Boboff, as he's turned all nice all of a sudden. Grumble grumble.

Well I am almost at the stage now of thinking that I have a faulty Goji plant! This year the 3rd I have no flowers and the leaves are falling off from about halfway up all on the bottom of the plant. SO I am trying to decide whether to leave it alone and watch or give it a good prune to about 18 inches,or even to buy another one.
I read somewhere that they like or can take a hard prune once a year which I have done before.
I know they are hardy plants but I do so want some berries!!!!!!But dont think my standing and staring at the Goji does much good!!!
Guess I will just have to make do with the Saskatoon berries which are doing really well and giving a heavy crop this year.

I know...
My first Goji is probably dead,although there's still some green under the bark at soil level.
(Zombie Goji?)
The replacement I bought was in full leaf when I bought it,but I had to sort trough a mass of them before I could select a potential survivor.
It is now looking like the plant equivalent of a leper.

But I suspect my Norse forest Loki of munching on the leaves a lot.
It looks like she gave up on grass and prefers Goji leaves for hairball disposal. :pukeright:

Anyone else who noticed this behaviour?
Could be just Loki though,she's always been a bit of a ''special'' girl. :scratch:
