The end of the goji berry bush

A few years ago, my parents passed their goji berry bushes onto me. One went in a hugel bed but the other looked like this

until I came home from work this evening.

I’d been trying to decide whether to keep it or not. Yes there was a space for it, no there wasn’t. Then my mum gave me an early birthday present of a raspberry cane, which decided the goji’s fate.

So, it is now in pieces in a large pot. Last year, I filled this pot with fuchsia and bokashi for a tomato plant. I was a bit disappointed with the number of fruit I got but there’s no harm in trying again. Especially as I don’t have the soil space anymore for many tomato plants.

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

  1. We are just donating our goji bushes to Mencap. They were cheap when we bought them from Morrisons, they never prospered on the farm or here, and so they are now definitely in the last chance saloon.
