Don't let them dry completely out! keep them moist and warm, in the sunlite. If the seed is fresh and viable, they will pop. After they pop, keep conditions the same, moist, warm and sunny. After all danger of frost, take them outside in full sun. Then, add fertilizer moderatly.

Hello all,
I am quite a novice at gardening (last year was my first attempt), but I am hoping to grow a few wolfberry bushes. I've received the seeds and carefully put one each a few little grow pots. I have them in the window...but I'm not sure if I'm doing this right....any suggestions? Thanks in advance!

That is quite a good strike rate, so will give it a try, nothing to lose. Thank you for your comments.

Hello Jude, like Richard, I've also managed to get store bought goji berries (l. barbarum) to germinate, with variable results. Of five or six berries, have got just four seedlings so not a great strike rate but a result never the less.

Richard Watson grew some from store bought seed, I believe.

Hey Cookinupastorm,
Have just been emailing with my cousin in Hanoi. He is wondering if dried Wolfberry, as in packet from the supermarket, would still hold a viable seed? I am thinking maybe they are heat treated when processed.

I have a bunnh of seed and would be glad to send you some. Like I said, I think I have a really good strain.

The Goji type that i grew from supermarket seed would be L. barbarum as chinensis is from the eastern Himalayas and is not picked commercially.
If you look on my page photos ,there's a photo there of one of my plants and show the suckers coming up well away from the plant.
I was allowing enough room for 100 goji,my thinking is i need to try other seed as well,i found one website thats selling a new F1hybrid from China,so i'm going to get some of that seed to try,any chance of trading some seed with you Stillcookin??

There are two types. (Lycium chinensis or L. barbarum) I don't know if they are suckers or just more of the bush. Mine, in the first year, are five feet tall and growing every direction and yes, have thorns. Here is a link to someone else new to growing them. They seem to have several types from around New York. Whatever the deal is, I like the strain I have. Lots of berries and grows well in my cold climate.
