Hi

I bought the Goji berry in the spring but in the last couple of weeks some of the leaves have started to turn brown. The shrub is in a large plastic container at the moment. Could it be deficient in nitrogen?

Thanks,
Kris

Lovely looking plant, but I suspect that it has outgrown its container.

The container is four times bigger then the original that came with it when I bought it. Would the plan grow out of its pot that quickly?

Thanks,
Kris

I bought a goji berry once and the slugs ate it. What I read so far is that they don't want to be treated nicely compost fertilizer etc. Poor soil is apparently all they want.
You can grow them from supermarket berries.
